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. This program is presented by Jenny Barnett, Museum Educator, of the African American Museum in Iowa.  It will be held in the lower level meeting room of the Clinton Public Library. Seating is limited so please call (563) 242-8441 to register.
