This is me and my Grandfather the night my Mom’s play, Leaving St. Paul, premiered at the 2015 Minnesota Fringe Festival. The play is a true story about my Grandfather, Arnold, working in Twin Cities real estate during the Civil Rights era.
Arnold lost his business because he sold houses in all neighborhoods to people of all ethnicities at a time when housing segregation was still practiced. His public comments on the issue were played on the local news, bringing serious consequences to his family, including loss of ‘friends’, and loss of their own home. All because he was living his principles.
This play celebrated Arnold’s character and actions during an important, if ugly chapter from our past. I was so proud to see it come alive on stage: a play about my Grandpa, written by my Mom … and starring my sister!
