The Council on Black Minnesotans seeks to improve our ability to serve the diverse and growing needs of Black Minnesotans. Robust community input helps us more effectively fulfill our role as liaisons to public policy makers and leaders in education, health, workforce development, non-profit and businesses.
The Minnesota Legislature created the State Council on Black Minnesotans in 1980 to ensure that people of African heritage fully and effectively participate in and equitably benefit from the political, social, and economic resources, policies and procedures of the State of Minnesota.
The Council on Black Minnesotans in partnership with the Minnesota Humanities Center invites you to Our Voices, Our Stories, Kick-off for our Legacy Listening Tour Tuesday, June 5, 2012, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Marnita’s Table, 2136 Penn Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN 55405.
The Legacy Listening Tour provides the Council a unique opportunity to preserve our cultural heritage; catalyze collaborative relationships across Minnesota while engaging the voices and viewpoints of individual Black Minnesotans. The Council on Black Minnesotans Legacy Listening Tour is supported by the arts and cultural heritage fund that was created by a vote of the people of Minnesota in November 2008.
Your companions for this Intentional Social Interaction are community members who are passionate about improving the lives of Black Minnesotans, Black Minnesotans who want to share their stories and voices, Black Minnesotans who want to help others share their voices and stories, and leaders in philanthropy, public policy, business, advocacy, education, health.
