MPR’s John Rabe reports on local African American leaders from the Twin Cities talking with local black leaders in South Africa.
A dozen leaders of Minnesota's black community linked up by video with a dozen of their counterparts in South Africa. They were at Lucille's Kitchen, a restaurant and venerable black meeting place in North Minneapolis, and in Sandton, a suburb of Johannesburg. Both countries have anti-racism campaigns underway, and panelists compared notes on how the fight is going. They found they have a lot in common ... including a lack of sure solutions.
