“Black History, Fredrick McGhee, and the Black Church in Minnesota”

Join the Macalester community for the end of Black History Month in learning about one of Minnesota's historic advocates: Fredrick McGhee. Born enslaved in Mississippi, McGhee became the first Black lawyer in Minnesota, cofounding the Niagara Movement with W.E.B. Dubois. In a lecture given by respected figure in our St. Paul community Yusef Mgeni, we'll come together to learn about a crucial time in the formation of the Black Church in our very own city, as well as the legacy of one of Minnesota's most prominent advocates for social justice of his time. The event will be held Wednesday, Feb 28th, in ArtCom 102 in the Janet Wallace Fine Arts Center, 4:30-6:00pm. Talk begins at 4:45p.

This event is sponsored by the Macalester Racial Justice Fund and the Macalester Religious Studies Department.
