‘Days of Rondo’ is Published

*On this date in 1990, Days of Rondo was published. The Days of Rondo by Evelyn Fairbanks is an interpretive account of events in the life of her family struggling for survival and meaning in a northern city.

In the 1930s and the 1940s, the Rondo community was at the heart of St. Paul, Minnesota's largest black neighborhood. African Americans whose families had lived in Minnesota for decades and others who were part of the great migration from the South made up a vital community that was in many ways independent of white society.
