Join North Dakota State University public history student Kirbie Sondreal for a discussion about a dark event in Duluth history and the monument erected to remember it. On June 15, 1920, a mob in Duluth lynched three black men accused of rape. In 2003, the city erected a first-of-its-kind memorial at the corner where the crime occurred. In her lecture, Sondreal will explore the causes and effects of both the lynching and memorial, focusing on Duluth's struggle for atonement.

After the presentation, guests can explore the house and enjoy light refreshments provided by Rustica Eatery and Tavern. This program is part of the Hiram M. and Ada M. Drache Lecture Series.
