The Way was a community center on the North Side of Minneapolis created in response to the first riots in August of 1966. (The second wave of riots occurred in July 1967 – click here for info).
A book called Minneapolis Negro Profile edited and published in 1970 by Walter R. Scott, Sr., included these photos that show that it was a live music venue as well. The band below is called the Cassanovas. Caption for the dancers reads: “Dance time at the Way Center and the young ‘brothers’ and ‘sisters’ do the Soulful Strut and get themselves together!”
