Owning Up: Racism and Housing in Minneapolis explores the history of racial housing discrimination in Minneapolis through the stories of three black families. The exhibit demonstrates the lasting effects of structural discrimination and aims to counter the enduring idea of Minneapolis as a model metropolis. It is part of the Racism, Rent, and Real Estate series commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act. The Act sought to eliminate barriers to home and property ownership by non-whites. The exhibit draws on research from Mapping Prejudice.

Curated by Denise Pike and Kacie Lucchini Butcher, graduate students in the University of Minnesotas Heritage Studies and Public History degree program. Exhibit design by Augsburg University's graphic design program Design & Agency.

Opening night will feature remarks by exhibit curator Denise Pike and Hennepin History Museum board member, Cara Letofsky.
