Mightier Than The Sword

November 14, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

- Free

Celebrate National Novel Writing Month with the AAMI as we examine the history and evolution of African American literature from the 18th century to the present – from autobiographical slave narratives to the creative explosion of the Harlem Renaissance and from the Black Arts Movement to modern-day authors, poets, and playwrights.

About the Series:

Join us at the Museum for free monthly presentations by Sean Donaldson, Museum Educator. These one-hour presentations will focus on a variety of topics ranging from broad African American history and the evolution of African american music, to Iowa’s African Americans in sports and African American holiday traditions. With twelve opportunities to explore, you won’t be disappointed.
