Echo North is
an emerging oral storytelling project beginning in January 2016 lead by Chaun Webster which looks at the ways the geography of North Minneapolis has been shaped by black memory and spatial practices sense the 1930 Hennepin county census.
This project's main concerns are excavating an archive of black presence and spatial practices in North Minneapolis that exist apart from an assumed asymmetrical relationship between blackness and whiteness, other and subject. The work from this project consists of several interviews, writing, city and county documents, newspaper clippings, photography and the creation of several maps.
Echo North will have its first exhibit on November 19th at The Loft Literary Center.
