Auto Racing

Brainerd International Raceway's 2017 Muscle Car Series kicks off Memorial Day weekend with the 9th Annual Street Car Showdown, a display of raw speed and power on the quarter-mile drag strip. The Showdown is the first race in the three-race series, featuring seven Heads-Up Classes, with cars that can run 6-7 seconds at over 200 mph. They have the kind of horsepower that yanks their front end off the ground when they launch from the starting line. The event also includes the SCCA Harvey West Classic on the 2.5-mile Competition Road Course. It features great wheel-to-wheel racing action. Two exciting events for the price of a single ticket! Daily admission is $25. Kids 12 and under are FREE! On-site camping.

Politics
Africa's First Democrats: President Osman and Premier Hussen of Somalia
5:30 p.m. Lecture 6:30 p.m. Book signing and reception Abdi Ismail Samatar provides a clear and foundational history of Somalia at the dawn of the country’s independence when Africa’s first democrats appeared. While authoritarian rulers dominated many African countries when they entered the postcolonial era, Somalia had an authentic democratic leadership. Samatar's political biography and history of Aden A. Osman and Abdirazak H. Hussen contradict the stereotype of African dictatorship. These leaders left behind a strong democratic legacy that provides an understanding for the ways we study and understand leadership and democracy in Africa and beyond. Hubert H. Humphrey, former Vice President and our school's namesake, is cited in the text, as he was the first and only American leader to visit the country during those years. This event is co-sponsored by the Humphrey School of Public Affairs' Office of the Dean and the Freeman Center for International Economic Policy.
