What to Expect

Join the Racial Truth and Justice Team on a field trip to Historic Fort Snelling and the newly-renovated Plank Museum. In addition to stories of frontier life in the 19th century, we will learn about Minnesota’s role in the national debate over slavery that led up to the Civil War. We will also look at Fort Snelling’s role in the 1862 Dakota War, when 2,000 Native American women & children were interned here. Information will be provided by Fort Snelling guides.
