Audre Lorde is often quoted as saying, “For the master’s tools will never dismantle the master’s house. They may allow us to temporarily beat him at his game, but they will never enable us to bring about genuine change.”
The Lower Phalen Creek Project and East Side Freedom Library are excited to host the screening of “History and Volunteerism in East Side St. Paul”, a local documentary. The film highlights Dakota culture, immigrant history in East Side St. Paul, and inspiring local volunteerism through the Mounds Park United Methodist Church. Filmmaker Kristi Wheeler, church organizer Eric Buck, and other community members will be available for questions and discussion.Website: eastsidefreedomlibrary.org
