In 1918, Minnesota and its residents were confronted with a series of devastating events that put communities to the test, forcing them to persevere through untold hardship. While 118,000 Minnesotans were serving in the war effort at home and abroad, and citizens on the home front were subjected to loyalty tests and new depths of government surveillance, thousands more were being struck down by the influenza pandemic. Then, in October, fires raged across 1,500 square miles in northeastern Minnesota, leaving thousands homeless and hundreds dead. How did the state and its people face these challenges?

Among the legendary soul, funk, and R&B acts depicted are Flyte Tyme, Prophets of Peace, Terry Lewis, Jimmy Jam, Morris Day, Prince, and many other influential musicians who helped establish the so-called “Minneapolis Sound.”
Beyond the nightlife, Chamblis’ portraits, images of family gatherings and weddings, fashion photography, landscapes, and photos of community events offer intimate and rare glimpses into the life of African Americans in the Twin Cities at these particular moments in time.
