We wrap up our Community Week series on Northland Morning leading up to the MCCU Twin Ports Bridge Festival tonight in Bayfront Festival Park in Duluth. We talk with Xavier Bell, the director of Community Engagement for Community Action Duluth. A speech that he gave back in 2011 was a touchstone for Shane Bauer to create the Twin Ports Bridge Festival.
We talk with Xavier about his work to engage citizens to break down the impediments of economic, racial, and class differences. He also weighs in on "Redefining Bullying," this year's Bridge Fest theme.
