Thursday, April 29th at 6:00 pm.
Presented by the African American Museum of Iowa, sponsored by the Keokuk Public Library Foundation. “Endless Possibilities: Iowa’s African American History” will take place on Zoom on Thursday, April 29th at 6:00 pm.
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. 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.
