"We the People: Nebraska Stories of Civil Rights" Video on YouTube

Check out the NSHS’s new video on YouTube!

During the Nebraska History Museum’s "We the People": The Nebraska Viewpoint exhibit, visitors were invited to tell their own stories in a video booth. Now the best of these recordings have been edited into a five-minute video called We the People: Nebraska Stories of Civil Rights. The video is the work of Joy Carey, a UNL broadcast news major and NSHS editorial assistant in the Publications Division.

Nebraska's Bones

Erwin Barbour’s family was very interested in old bones! From discovery to display, the family was a central part of Nebraska paleontology, expanding knowledge of the state’s fossils and making possible the University of Nebraska State Museum at Morrill Hall. In the Winter 2013 issue of Nebraska History, author Lois B. Arnold explores the family that had such a large impact on Nebraska paleontology as we know it.
