Jesse Schomberg says calling Superior a "lake" lulls people into a false sense of security.

History always has an agenda, says author Annette Atkins.

Many of us grew up in a time when the agenda was to teach patriotism.

But now, she says, we want to take pride in a bigger story.

Creating Minnesota: A History from the Inside Out is published by the Minnesota Historical Society Press.

Social commentary is not foreign to Prøve Gallery shows, and their new exhibit brings a fresh voice inviting the audience to examine their cultural constructs and social discomfort that create and sustain disparity and inequality. Duluth Artist Carla Hamilton returns to the space with a solo show called “Minnesota Nice” with collage, film and more.

Energy Democracy: Germany's Energiewende/Facebook

Germany is well on its way to phasing out fossil fuels and nuclear energy and replacing them with renewables.

But in a stunning display of democracy (?), everyday people are driving this energy transition (called "Energiewende" which, literally translated, means "energy turn").

KUMD's Adam Reinhardt talked with co-author Craig Morris in Germany.

Carl Gawboy

Niiyo-wiij-anishinaabeg or four friends, a new show in The Depot Great Hall, has opened and is up through July 24.  Minnesota artists George Morrison, Joe Geshick and Carl Gawboy each took different artistic paths with their work but their journeys as leading Ojibwe artists in the 20th century brought them together. They welcome you on this journey with them, as the fourth friend.

KUMD's Chris Harwood speaks with Greg Anderson, the Social Service Supervisor for St. Louis County Public Health and Human Services.
