Event Description

Little known today, racial segregation became solidly established here in the early 20th century and was only ended with much struggle from the 1940s into the 1960s. What happened to Jesse Fell’s community? Why was it OK that blacks were kept out of restaurants, hotels, and the whites’ swimming areas?

Presented by Professor Emeritus Mark Wyman, Department of History, ISU
