The Eastside Stories production group formed to amplify the voices of BIPOC residents and business owners in East St. Paul to foster a deeper sense of community. Other neighborhoods in the Twin Cities have done an excellent job of sharing their stories and history like Rondo, the Northside of Minneapolis and Camden town. Yet the East side remains a bit of a mystery to those outside and even inside our community. People don't know what’s happening if the stories are not being told, so a small group of us came together to tell these stories. So far we have produced 13 stories in the series, and we will create three new stories during summer and fall of 2021.
