"A Right to Establish a Home" Opening Reception (Goldstein Museum of Design)

Date: 08/22/2014

Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Location: HGA Gallery Rapson Hall

Cost: Free


A Right to Establish a Home examines the history behind a series of menacing protests that enveloped 4600 Columbus Avenue South, Minneapolis following the property’s purchase in August 1931 by Arthur and Edith Lee. The young African-American couple chose to buy a house in what many then considered a “white neighborhood.” The exhibition interprets the protests and responses in the broader context of race and housing in Minneapolis, racism in Minnesota, and the individuals and organizations that defended the Lees, including the NAACP and the distinguished attorney Lena Olive Smith.
