The 1920 Duluth Lynchings 
Monday, April 11, 1:30 p.m.

One of the most horrific events in Minnesota history occurred in Duluth on June 15, 1920, when three African American circus workers, suspects in an assault case, were taken from the jail and lynched by a white mob of thousands. 
On Monday, April 11, at 1:30 p.m. in the Forum Room at Crosby-Ironton High School, Lakes Area Unlimited Learning will welcome Dr. David Gray, Cuyuna Range native and Central Lakes College history professor, who will carefully examine this tragedy and the context in which it occurred.
Dr. Gray will address such questions as: Why did it happen in 1920?  What factors were in play that resulted in these evil acts?  Besides the mob, who bears responsibility for these murders?  What was the context and what were the reactions and repercussions?
Long forgotten – or just ignored – Duluth and all Minnesotans are now remembering and memorializing this tragedy.  Join Lakes Area Unlimited Learning for the opportunity to hear more about this violent and lawless episode. 
The fee is $5.00 for non-members, and it’s free for members.
