“The longest bridge is a reference to the complex relationship between North and Northeast Minneapolis between the working class European Americans, African Americans and immigrant communities from around the world that call Minneapolis home. As the neighborhoods on both sides of the bridge are becoming prime real estate we are lifting up their stories – the good, bad, ugly and beautiful – of the working poor communities that raised us on that turf.” –G.P.jacob [Read more…] about Listen/Article/Review – The Longest Bridge – G.P.jacob, Prod.

Not too many cooks in this kitchen. If ears could taste, you would be stuffing your ears with this.
Celebrate the release of R.T. Rybak’s Pothole Confidential: My Life as Mayor of Minneapolis with the former mayor (and legendary stage-diver) – a fun night of local music, highlights from the book, and a signing with R.T. Show starts at 7:00 PM on Wednesday, April 13, 2016 at First Avenue in Minneapolis.
Pothole Confidential is a clear-eyed look inside the life and times of Minneapolis and its dynamic three-term mayor. In the words of Lizz Winstead, “This book is a love letter to Minneapolis and it tells the riveting story of what you must tackle to make and keep a city great.”

During his tenure as mayor, R.T. led efforts to make Minneapolis a national leader in innovative, cradle-to-career approaches to youth development and has worked to highlight the crisis of our region’s achievement gap and advance effective strategies for ending it.
