History Revealed Series
Program Date: Thursday, January 13, 2022

In partnership with the East Side Freedom Library and the Roseville Library.
We Are Meant to Rise is presented in partnership with More Than a Single Story and the University of Minnesota Press.
We are Meant to Rise (published by the University of Minnesota Press) is a brilliant and rich gathering of voices on the American experience of this past year and beyond, from Indigenous writers and writers of color from Minnesota. These writers bear witness to one of the most unsettling years in U.S. history, with essays and poems that vividly reflect the traumas we endured in 2020.
Arising out of Carolyn Holbrook’s work with her organization, More Than a Single Story, We Are Meant to Rise merges the events of today, the past year, and the centuries before, in works that are powerful testaments to the intrinsic and unique value of all who make up our community, lifting up the often overlooked voices of BIPOC writers in Minnesota.
We were honored to have some of these writers join us in a panel discussion about their writing and experiences.
