      Schools Chief

      turns Author

      on Minnesota

      racial history


      --- By STEVE  BRANDT 
      ( Minneapolis Star Tribune)


      Before Bill Green became superintendent
      Minneapolis schools, he was a Historian.

      One of his interests, the early history
      of …People-of-Color in Minnesota ,
      has blossomed into a new book.

      [His book,] "A Peculiar Imbalance"
      examines the complex and mutating
      relationships [found] among
      [Blacks, Amerindians, Whites,
      Missionaries, Politicians] and
      the
      Mixed-Race inhabitants that
      defined
      Minnesota's early racial history.

      It covers the first 50 years after
      Fort Snelling was established.

      Green calls his book an extended essay,
      but it's also a footnoted history wound
      around the lives of Minnesotans in ways
      that reveal the shifting attitudes of the times.

      "A PECULIAR IMBALANCE:
      The Fall and Rise of Racial
      Equality in Early Minnesota "
