About the Book by Samuel G. Freedman Titled “Into the Bright Sunshine: Young Hubert Humphrey and the Fight for Civil Rights”

From a New York Times book review by Khalil Gibran Muhammad headlined “How Hubert Humphrey Tried to Make Minneapolis, and America, Less Racist”:

Minneapolis may be the city most notorious for anti-Black police violence in the world. In 2020, following the murder of George Floyd by the police officer Derek Chauvin, tens of millions of people across the United States protested for civil rights in a city once considered a national model of racial liberalism, in a state whose citizens are thought to be “Minnesota Nice.”
