Davis Education Service Center1250 W Broadway Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55411 </div> </div> </div> <h3>Keith Mayes, associate professor of African-American and African Studies, University of Minnesota</h3> <h3>Spike Moss, civil rights activist</h3> <div>For three nights in July 1967, the North Side of Minneapolis along Plymouth Avenue erupted&nbsp;in rebellion. Police and National Guard units were called in to occupy parts of the neighborhood in response. The so-called "urban crisis" of the 1960s produced similar events in many other cities in the U.S. This crisis and the conditions behind it that prevailed in many communities of color during the 1960s was the impetus for the University board of Regents to establish the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA) in 1968.&nbsp; As we commemorate our 50th anniversary, we have invited community leader Spike Moss and Keith Mayes, associate professor of African American and African Studies at the University of Minnesota to join us for the last in our Anniversary Seminar series. Moss and Mayes will discuss the events of July 1967 and their relevance for today.&nbsp;</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <p><a href="https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdPomHTfNgyTz6cxDhmsOp4Vno7MIyUzh3m4ba7Gxi1M8fMdA/viewform" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Register now!</a></p> <p>Reception to follow</p> Thu, 04 Oct 2018 16:03:27 +0000 jmiller 8141 at http://www.cura.advantagelabs.com
