The Mount Zion Tzedek Committee invites you to an important film screening of Jim Crow of the North. As part of the committee’s commitment to racial justice and fair housing, we are showing this film as an opportunity to explore the relationship between racism, segregation, and housing policy.
Jim Crow of the North is an hour-long documentary about the role Minneapolis played in this part of our history through the use of restrictive covenants that discriminated against Black people, Jews and others looking for housing.
After the film, there will be a brief discussion about what this story means to us and how we can help repair the damage done by these harmful policies. We’ll be done in time for Hebrew School/Chai School pickup at 7:15.
