A Peculiar Imbalance: The Fall and Rise of Racial Equality in Early Minnesota

A Peculiar Imbalance: The Fall and Rise of Racial Equality in Early Minnesota

In the 1850s, as Minnesota Territory was reaching toward statehood, settlers from the eastern United States moved in, carrying rigid perceptions of race and culture into a community built by people of many backgrounds who relied on each other for survival. History professor William Green unearths the untold stories of African Americans and contrasts their experiences with those of Indians, mixed bloods, and Irish Catholics. He demonstrates how a government built on the ideals of liberty and equality denied the rights to vote, run for office, and serve on a jury to free men fully engaged in the lives of their respective communities.

This 185-paged hardcover book is written by William D. Green.
