3rd Anniversary: “Giving our History a Home:
A Celebration of African American Women in Iowa” – December 6

Kathryn Neal

This event launched a project to document the lives and experiences of African American women in Iowa by acquiring personal papers and organizational records.  Kathryn Neal was hired as archivist for the project and over the next three years developed a rich repository of primary source materials for this previously under-documented group of Midwestern women.
