MINNEAPOLIS INTERVIEW PROJECT SEPT. 14
The Minneapolis Interview Project in partnership with Hennepin History Museum will present an evening of real-life stories about social justice in Minneapolis. The Minneapolis Interview Project was started in 2016 by Anne Winkler-Morey, a writer, historian, activist scholar and Southside resident. Her goal was to interview one-hundred people of different ages, races, genders, economic classes, migration experiences, as well as living in different parts of Minneapolis. She invited people to tell their life-stories that reveal hidden histories of inequity and the struggle for social justice in Minneapolis. On Thursday, Sept. 14, 2023, Winkler-Morey and many of the people she interviewed will read from their interview transcripts. The evening will also feature photographs by Minneapolis-based artist, photographer, and teacher, Eric Mueller, who joined the project in 2019, volunteering his expertise to photograph interviewees in locations that are important to them.The event will be held at The Capri Theater, 2027 West Broadway, at 6 p.m. The event is free, but registration is required.
