Historical Note

This collection was used as a ready reference source for the Jewish Historical Society of the Upper Midwest, as the topic of Black/Jewish relations was a research questions they often received. The Historical Society culled secondary source materials from various reports and publications to create this collection. The articles focus on the relations between the Jewish communities and Black communities throughout Minneapolis and St. Paul, most notably in North Minneapolis. These materials come together to create a collection that informs researchers on the history of these two minority populations in the early 20th century.
