The history behind St. Paul's co-named streets

Travel around St Paul and you’ll notice that some of the streets have two names--the 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, who dug into some of the stories behind the street names. This documentary features an African-American woman and civil rights activist, a local rabbi involved with national issues, and a labor activist who became the mayor of St Paul during the Depression.
