Community Builder: Wayne Glanton

For his Illuminating Legacies project, Daniel Bergin explored the Black experience in South Minneapolis neighborhoods through a series of video vignettes. Community Builder is the first of these vignettes.

Community Builder presents an overview of the work and impact of pioneering carpenter and construction entrepreneur Wayne Glanton. Mr Glanton was born onto 4th Avenue and picked up the tools of his trade as a boy. In the 9 decades to follow, he quietly -and literally- has constructed a lasting legacy in both the built environment of the city and through the spirit of civic engagement and leadership.
