Tuesday with a Scholar: A Divided Campus – Conflict at the University of Minnesota (1930-1942)

Tuesday with a Scholar series continues with: A Campus Divided: Progressives, Anticommunists, Racism and Antisemitism at the University of Minnesota from 1930-1943. From 1930 until 1942, the University of Minnesota was at the center of state and global conflicts about war and student rights. Prof. Emerita Riv-Ellen Prell will discuss how student movements protested policies of suppression of student rights, exclusion of African Americans from taxpayer-funded student housing, and the segregation of both Jewish and Black students from campus life.
