Mr. Edwards, 80-years old has been in Minnesota since 1945. He's worked in a number of different fields, including being the longest seated chairman of the board for the Minneapolis Urban League. He's been listening to some community member (that did not live in Minnesota), talk about how they marched with the late MLK, and basically being untruthful about the "history" of Minnesota and the Black American community. On today's show, with the assistance of his co-host: Don Allen, they talk about the "real" history of Black Minnesota and why those folks that receive "Trailblazer" awards are basically being untruthful and have no idea about anything in Minnesota's black community, to include the first Black American neighborhood, stores, nightclubs, and shopping centers. 

Joise Johnson, move over; Dr. El Kati - listen up.
