Our Gathering Places Oral History Project
Description Most of these interviews were conducted to obtain background material for an exhibit at the Minnesota History Center about the African-American community in Minnesota. Those done by Mary Murphy-Gnatz and her colleagues were conducted to prepare curriculum materials for fourth graders. The interviews primarily focus on neighborhood activities, barbershops, and beauty shops, although several musicians were interviewed and also some people who grew up outside metropolitan area.
