In April 2018, thirty-five Duluth community members attended the opening of the National Memorial for Peace and Justice and the Legacy Museum in Montgomery, Alabama, visiting sites where racial terror had occurred along the way. Among them were several members of the Duluth NAACP, who have agreed to share their experiences on this journey.
Claudie Washington was, at the time of the recording, the 2nd Vice President of NAACP-Duluth Branch and President of the Twin Ports African American Men’s Group, as well as former long term President of Duluth NAACP and former Vice President of the Minnesota & Dakotas Area State NAACP Conference. Ivy Vainio is chair of the Duluth Branch NAACP Communications Committee.
Content Warning: Due to the violent subject matter, some of the events discussed in these Duluth to Montgomery Reflections interviews may be unsettling.
Credits: Duluth to Montgomery Reflections produced by Ivy Vainio, Becky Nelson, Abby Dillon, and Nat Harvie. Our theme music was composed by Jake Vainio.
