Protest and Punishment: Political Prisoners of Minnesota

McCarthy Clifford will perform archival research and community involvement and develop a series of leaflets highlighting an urgent history of activism and dissent in Minnesota. A roundtable workshop with local activists, press, historians, and union workers will inform the project through diverse perspectives, supplementing historical research into the stories of Minnesotan farmers, laborers, journalists, and politicians sentenced to federal prison for protesting during the first world war.
