Urbane Exposure uses concert to attract African- Americans and African- American volunteers to Minneapolis Parks

Minneapolis is home to some of the most beautiful, scenic parks in the nation.

The parks operated by the Minneapolis Parks & Recreation Board … 197 in total … offer hiking, biking, golfing, fishing, boating and yes, the occasional concert. But for whatever reason, all of the area’s residents aren’t taking advantage of what the Parks Board has to offer. Although the data isn’t clear and the reasons unknown, many African-Americans are not utilizing the parks, and even fewer are volunteering with the many programs – several geared towards youth – which the Parks Board oversees. With Urbane Exposure, the Minneapolis Parks & Recreation Board hopes to change all of that.
