MinneCulture presents the history behind St. Paul's co-named streets
October 2, 2013
Travel around St Paul and you’ll notice that some of the streets have two names--one that appears on maps, and a second, co-street name that honors an individual. Katie McWatt Avenue, Raskas Road, William Mahoney Street--these caught the eye of KFAI producer Bobbie Scott.
Tune into MinneCulture tonight at 7:30pm to hear some of the stories behind the street names; from an African-American woman and civil rights activist, to a local rabbi involved with national issues, to a labor activist who became the mayor of St Paul during the Depression.
MinneCulture is made possible by a grant from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
