Our Past Guides our Future: Minnesota Omega Men at 100

November 20, 2021 – March 6, 2022

The Our Past Guides Our Future exhibit marks the centennial of the founding of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity by showcasing the history and community impact of the Epsilon Rho Chapter in Minneapolis. The Epsilon Rho story is an entry point to highlighting the rich history of Black Sororities and Fraternities (Divine Nine) both nationally and in Minnesota. The exhibit showcases the Cardinal Principles that guide Omega Psi Phi through stories of the men, past and present, who live those principles daily.

Homeless in the Mill


The exhibit offers a very personal view of homelessness and a unique perspective on the lives of the individuals who took shelter in the mill before it became a museum in 2003.
