As parents, we teach our children how to move through the world. But as our children grow older, we learn from them, too.

That relationship can grow into a real partnership and friendship — and a positive support system pushing each other to be better and do better.

Our next Power Pair is a good example of that transition: Mother-daughter duo Rose McGee and Roslyn Harmon.

It’s part of our new series on the show about prominent Minnesotans you may know about individually, but who also have a close relationship.

Guests:

  • Rose McGee is President and Founder of the Sweet Potato Comfort Pie organization, which brings people together for hope, healing and dialogue around race. She’s also a facilitator, author and recent Bush Fellow.

  • Roslyn Harmon is the mayor of Golden Valley — the first Black person to hold that position. She is also an educator, counselor and ordained pastor.
