In the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, Minneapolis resident Walter R. Scott produced a series of books about African American life in the Twin Cities. The people and stories presented in the three original volumes reflect a vibrant community of businesspeople, artists, educators, athletes, and other public figures while providing an intimate look at everyday life in black homes, schools, neighborhoods, and businesses.

Join Scott's children, Walter R. Scott Jr., Dr. Chaunda Scott, Anthony R. Scott, George Scott, and his widow, Mary McCormack-Scott, as they discuss the impact and legacy of this “pictorial resume of the black community, its achievements, and its goals.”

Enjoy the music of The George Scott Trio in the Minnesota History Center's Irvine Lounge from 6-7 pm before the History Lounge program.
