Voices of Rondo
Oral Histories of Saint Paul’s Historic Black Community
A look at the historic Rondo neighborhood of Saint Paul through the eyes of thirty-three former residents—back in print
Real-life stories illuminate the northern urban Black experience during the first half of the twentieth century through the reflections of residents of Saint Paul’s historic Rondo community. We glimpse the challenges of racism and poverty and share the victories of a community that educated its children to become strong, to find personal pride, and to become the next generation of leaders.
