Minneapolis – Learning from Place: Cedar-Riverside/West Bank

April 27 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm CDT

Composite image featuring pictures of storefronts, and street scenes from Minneapolis' Cedar-Riverside and West Bank neighborhoods.

The Cedar-Riverside/West Bank neighborhood in Minneapolis is one of the most diverse communities in the Midwest, with a longstanding tradition of activism, cultural diversity, and the arts. The neighborhood has long been a landing place for newly arrived immigrants, with some moving on and some settling in the West Bank more permanently. Today the neighborhood is home to a large East African community, including Somali, Ethiopian, and Oromo people who live alongside neighbors and descendants from earlier waves of immigration. The West Bank continues to welcome new arrivals. Build your cultural understanding during this interactive, in-person experience that includes a walking tour with several stops led by Abdirizak Bihi, host of KFAI’s Somali Link Radio. A food sample from a local restaurant will be provided.

K-12 educators will receive 3 clock hours.

This event is a collaboration with Pillsbury United Communities/Brian Coyle Center.
