The City's Office of Equity and Human Rights has partnered with the African American Museum of Iowa to host a free virtual presentation on the history of "The Only One" from noon - 1 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 24, 2022.

Based off the AAMI’s 2012 temporary exhibit of the same name, “The Only One” explores the experiences of Iowans who were the only African American on a sports team, in a classroom, at work, and in other situations. Learn about Alexander Clark, who integrated Iowa schools in 1868 when his daughter Susan enrolled in Muscatine Grammar School #2; or Louis Dade, who won the Iowa Amateur Golf title in 1939 despite being denied access to the Fort Madison County Club.
