A plaque at the Victoria Street Green Line Station that commemorates Sharon Sayles-Belton, the first African-American and woman to be elected mayor of Minneapolis (1994-2001). A St. Paul Native, she attended nearby Central High School and is a graduate of Macalester College. There are many other plaques at this station that commemorate the contributions of African-Americans in the Twin Cities.
