George & Chloe Daniels

Hastings, MN

The Dakota County Historical Society brought our team on board to update its nearly 20 year-old exhibit about George Daniels at the LeDuc Historic Estate. Working with staff, stakeholders, and historians, we developed a concept that expands beyond the remarkable story of one man who was born enslaved, freed himself, and eventually settled a homestead. The future exhibits will also feature his wife, their children, descendants, the historical Black community of Hastings, and the larger African American presence in rural Minnesota.

The Big Idea: "The lives of George and Chloe Daniels reveal that the Black experience in Minnesota is long-standing, ongoing, and essential to understanding the shared history of all Minnesotans."

The Amplifier team is once again working with the community to bring this concept to full fruition.
