Join us for a virtual edition of Community Connections highlighting African American history in Iowa with a presentation from the African American Museum of Iowa.

Did you know 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.

Founded in Cedar Rapids in 1993 the African American Museum of Iowa is a statewide museum dedicated to preserving, exhibiting, and teaching Iowa’s African American history.

Community Connections is supported by the Friends of the Bettendorf Public Library. 

This program will take place virtually via GoToMeeting. Registration is required in order to receive a link and password to join the program.
