The SuperBowl is in the air – and in the streets, the press, the lifeblood of the community. Wisely, Minneapolis Central Library has seized the opportunity – fortunately for locals and visitors alike the Library is taking the high road by opening the archives and inviting the public to face facts.
American football legend and former Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Alan Page and Diane Sims Page are currently sharing their collection of “Americana from Slavery to Today.”
TESTIFY is a wide-ranging exhibit that features art and artifacts from pivotal eras in American history. The exhibit also provides a platform for visitors to share their thoughts, feelings and personal experiences.

Alan Page will also offer a public program entitled “TESTIFY: It’s Not About the Flag or the Anthem: It’s About Justice. The intent, according to Page, is to respond to the ongoing NFL controversy re. players’ protests; focus will shift from whether player protests are appropriate to a discussion of the underlying issue of racial justice.
