MN Reads: "The Scott Collection" by Walter R. Scott

Apr 26, 2018

Anthony Scott talks about the writing of the three books in this collection: Centennial Edition of the Minneapolis Beacon (1956), Minneapolis Negro Profile (1968), and Minnesota’s Black Community (1976) -- and growing up with the father who wrote them.

The Scott Collection: Minnesota's Black Community in the '50s, '60s, and '70s is published by the Minnesota Historical Society Press.
 

Anthony Scott says work is beginning on a new book, and he hopes to gather input from cities all around Minnesota.  You can email Anthony Scott with your stories or to ask for more information here.
