This is the story of a 40-year struggle to overcome the adversity of
racial injustice in Minneapolis. The city has mastered the harmful political
and economic machinery for keeping minorities "in their place"
in terms of education, housing, jobs, and the war on young Black men.
No one knows the story better nor tells the story better than Ron Edwards.
The Minneapolis Story is the story of the great experiment of the last
outpost of keeping Blacks in their place. Ron Edwards fights the powerful
people who are determined to take their misguided and elitist views of
how to control a city to the rest of America. He pulls the covers off
and exposes their actions with his visions of a real America, one that
has a seat at the table for everyone. Checkmate! The Minneapolis Story
is also your story as it is the story of every city in America.
