We must all be a part of dismantling white supremacy in its many forms, including and especially racial profiling.
The University of Minnesota Press is in sympathy and solidarity with the grieving family of Daunte Wright, killed by police during a traffic stop near Minneapolis on Sunday, April 11, 2021, and acknowledges the trauma and fear experienced by the Black members of our community today and every day. In order for our world to be more equitable and just, we must all be a part of dismantling white supremacy in its many forms, including and especially racial profiling. In the shadow of the Derek Chauvin trial, we affirm, once again and always: BLACK LIVES MATTER.

Staci Lola Drouillard's new memoir has many merits, none more important than its generous spirit. Rather than grabbing the lead role for herself, the Grand Marais, Minn., author cedes the spotlight to family members who taught her valuable lessons about history, love and family.
Jun 17, 2022
I hope that Drouillard inspires families to spend time this summer learning about the challenges that family elders, alive and passed on, have faced and survived.
