Join Rollie Robinson (Messiah Church’s former Senior Pastor) for a reading and conversation about the history of The Way, a North Minneapolis community center established in the aftermath of the urban unrest of 1966. The Way had a profound impact on the education, arts, civil rights, and lives of Northside youth, including Prince Rogers Nelson. The Minneapolis Police Department’s 4th Precinct now stands where this influential neighborhood icon once was.
