New African American Museum opens in Minneapolis this weekendby Tom Crann, Minnesota Public Radio
MINNEAPOLIS — The new Minnesota African American Museum and Cultural Center in Minneapolis opens this weekend, in an old Victorian era mansion known as the Coe House. The museum has been created to help share the state's history from a perspective that isn't always heard.
The museum's opening is part of the first Legacy Festival being held at Stevens Park just south of downtown Minneapolis this weekend.
Earlier Friday, as workers were still getting the museum ready for its debut, MPR's Tom Crann talked with the museum's founder Roxanne Givens.
