University of Iowa Establishes Online Digital Archive of Exhibits Pertaining to Black Women in Iowa in the Twentieth Century

The University of Iowa libraries recently posted a new online archive of exhibits relating to African-American women in Iowa during the twentieth century. Included in the online digital archive are images from the scrapbook of Althea “Bee” Moore, an African-American undergraduate student who was enrolled at the University of Iowa from 1924 to 1928.

This photograph shows a group of Moore’s friends on campus. She labeled the photograph in her scrapbook, “Our Old Gang-The Frosh.”
