‘The Life, The Work, The Fight: Black Duluth in History”

black duluth in history

‘The Life, The Work, The Fight: Black Duluth in History’

This project combines excerpts of recent oral histories of African American elders in Duluth with historical profiles dating back to the late 19th Century to show the depth and complexity of the journey that living in Duluth has been. Each of the leaders in these stories have been influential in setting the stage for each new generation of the African American Community.

This display is just an interim step to begin to show the histories that have been collected and to encourage others to contribute their stories, their documents, and their photographs to build the permanent historical collection. We welcome suggestions and ideas of what are the next stories to be collected and preserved.

We feel these stories and experiences are relevant not just to black folks but to all people who are part of the community because of how they shaped the city that Duluth is today. And as just the first step, we know that the history of Black Duluth is more complex than we can show in a single exhibition.

Additional historical photographs from the Minnesota Historical Society, as well as the University of Minnesota Duluth Kathryn A. Martin Library Archives and Special Collections Archives and Special Collections, and a variety of personal collections.

Sponsored by Clayton Jackson McGhie Memorial Inc., with the support of the Minnesota Historical Society and the Lloyd K. Johnson Foundation. This project has been financed in part with funds provided by the State of Minnesota from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the Minnesota Historical Society.

“Art & Science” Adam Swanson

‘Art & Science’ Adam Swanson
My work addresses the future, fragility of the human presence, perseverance of nature and underlying threads of danger woven through societies. There is a deep relationship between art and science. The more we learn about our surroundings, where we came from and who we are, the more likely we will thrive in a universe of endless possibilities.This show focuses on threatened animals. As a participant of the current mass extinction I am interested in painting about animals, adaptability and the things we can do to make our world a better place for future generations of life.

After 10 years of travel and a few stints in Antarctica, I have called northern MN home since 2009. I paint full-time, am married and a father of two. More of my work can be seen on my websitewww.adamswanson.com.
