Ride4Reparations: A History of Racial Covenants in Minneapolis Housing
On August 21st the Ride4Reparations (R4R) 15 mile bike tour of the Twin Cities will take place highlighting the story and history of covenanted housing communities in Minneapolis. Learn about who could, and more importantly who could not, purchase houses in what neighborhoods and why. The educational component of the ride will be led by Penny Petersen, of the University of Minnesota’s Mapping Prejudice Project. Thank you Penny!
The ride has a suggested ticket price of $75.00 to cover costs and to help support Northside Achievement Zone (NAZ). For more information go to Ride4Reparations.org.
