Diversity Colloquium 2017: African American Labor History in Waterloo

Tuesday, September 12, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm
ScholarSpace Room 301
Rod Library, West 27th Street,Cedar Falls, IA, United States

Facilitator: Niria White, UNI undergraduate history major

Niria White is currently working on a research project and Grout museum exhibit that narrates the impact of African American workers in Waterloo. Her talk traces African American settlement in Waterloo during the Great Migration and beyond, focusing on their many contributions to the city of Waterloo, using historical records, artifacts, and personal interviews. By exploring the history of African Americans in Waterloo, White counters the idea that African Americans have only been politically active in the Civil Rights era.
