In collaboration with the University of Minnesota Heritage Studies & Public History program and Harrison Neighborhood Association, Our Streets Minneapolis created a Mobile History Museum of Old 6th Avenue North. The Mobile History Museum tells the important history of a culturally vibrant community of Black and Jewish people before they were displaced from their homes and businesses for the "highway to nowhere."
The research was compiled into a Mobile History Museum, a series of panels highlighting the stories of the past and confronting the present. The Mobile History Museum is a traveling exhibition that debuted in the Harrison neighborhood with a walking tour. The Mobile History Museum was shown at the Open Streets Minneapolis event series and has traveled to various other places for exhibition, including Sumner Library—one of the only remaining neighborhood buildings from before the construction of the highway.
