Personal experiences with racism in Duluth

By ERIC SIMON

Racism. Although it has been decades since segregation ended and well over a century since the emancipation proclamation, racism still exists in Duluth. The 2000 census for the state of Minnesota reports that less than 1 percent of the population identified themselves as African-American while almost 95 percent identified themselves as Caucasian. I sat down with two African-American mothers to talk to them about their experiences in Duluth.

Tamika Robinson is a 30-year-old mother of three. She has lived in Duluth for almost eight years; she is originally from St. Paul.

Denise Lewis is a 47-year-old single mother of three. She has lived in Duluth for 14 years; she was originally from Providence, Rhode Island.
