GEOGRAPHY OF THE HEART
By Steve Mckeown Veterans for Peace Newsletter Summer 2017
On August 5th, come join us at the St. Paul Farmers Market from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. to hand out leaflets to let people know about this street named after the only person from Minnesota to ever win the Nobel Peace Prize, awarded for his work in writing and passing the Kellogg-Briand Pact which outlawed WAR, and still does.
NOTE: The Farmers Market is located at 290 5th St. East in St. Paul. Meet at the Black Dog Cafe between 8 and 8:15 a.m. Across from the Farmers Market on the SE corner.
While pursuing my degree in Geography at the U of M, I took a graduate class taught by a Chinese Professor who emphasized the human perception of Geography, an experiential view we give to space and place. My instructor has long since passed on , but I think he would have been interested in helping us flyer near Kellogg Blvd in St. Paul to make better known what, why, and for whom the street is named after. For those in the Peace Movement perhaps he would have called it “The Geography of the Heart” that goes beyond the physical.
Part of the Democracy Convention/Peace and Democracy being held
August 2 – 6 on the University of Minnesota Campus.
