History Adventures: Driven By Hope

July 3, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

- Free

Join us for the second session of our Summer History Adventure Series! Based on our current temporary exhibit, Driven By Hope, kids will learn about African American migration to Iowa in 1911. Through the experiences of African Americans in Waterloo, kids will leave with a deeper understanding of the issues migrants faced. After a stroll through the exhibit, they will work together to create and decorate a large cardboard boxcar. Program suggested for ages 5-10.

About the Series:

Last year, the AAMI rolled out its inaugural Children’s Summer Series, with regular programming aimed at teaching our youth about African American history through fun activities. This year’s summer program, History Adventures, will give children the same opportunity to have fun engaging with history. The program will run every other Wednesday in June and July.
