Race and the presidency at Roseville Library

Election Year 2016 raised as many critical issues as it settled. For many voters, the choice in the voting booth was influenced by issues of class, race and gender — issues that have had a long history in the American political landscape. At key points in the past, political candidates, parties, and voters have argued passionately about these issues.  Can we find new meaning in our present-day arguments by situating them within an historical context? 

Join Peter Rachleff, history professor emeritus at Macalester College and founding co-executive director of the East Side Freedom Library in St. Paul, for a new series on the issues which have driven political energies in the past two years — and in the more distant past. Each talk is at 12:30 p.m. at the Roseville Library, 2180 Hamline Ave. N., Nov. 15, 22 and 29.
