Endless Possibilities: Iowa’s African American History

Saturday, February 20, 2021

Iowa was the first state in the U.S. to officially integrate its public schools in 1868, just three years after the Civil War ended. Surprised? This and so much more is part of Iowa’s wealth of African American history that will be explored in this presentation by the African American Museum of Iowa. From York, the first African American in Iowa and member of the Lewis and Clark expedition, to the first Black president, Barack Obama, African American history is American history and Iowa has many stories to share. The video of this presentation will be publicly available from Saturday, February 20th to Saturday, February 27th. The video will be viewable via the Library's social media accounts and the video will also be posted here.
