Neighborhood Context 


A tour of Minneapolis' Cedar-Riverside neighborhood via The Current 

"Cedar-Riverside has a deep cultural and artistic history; in the mid-1800s, the U.S. government forced Native inhabitants to sell their land, and soon Scandinavian and Eastern European immigrants began flooding the West Bank. In recent years, Cedar-Riverside has been a home to Somali refugees fleeing the country's civil war, which officially began in 1991. Thanks in large part to voluntary agencies, many Somali refugees found their way to Minnesota, which can now claim the largest Somali population in the United States."
