Outside In: African American History in Iowa. Speakers Bureau Program of Humanities Iowa.
The program is a 15 minute audio-visual survey of the major people, organizations, and events in Iowa's African-American history from its territorial beginning in 1838 to the present. It also emphasizes the African-American history of the place where the presentation is made, and Dr. Chase works with local people prior to the presentation to uncover and incorporate this material into the program. In addition, audience members are encouraged to bring their stories, scrapbooks, and family albums to the presentation and share their content.
