Brown Bag: Nebraska's Suffragist Journalists: Clara Bewick Colby and Rheta Childe Dorr

Time: 12:00pm to 1:00pm

The presenter, Dr. Eileen Wirth, is the author of a book on Nebraska’s women journalists, “From Society Page to Front Page.”

Celebrating Nebraska's Black Leaders

Date: Saturday, January 25, 2020 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm
Time: 1:00pm to 4:00pm
Location: Nebraska History Museum

We know Martin Luther King Jr. was a national leader, but he was also an experienced community leader working with community leaders across the nation. Who were Nebraska's black community leaders? Don't miss this chance to add to your understanding of Nebraska's Black leaders with this event!

  • Hear presentations, original artwork, and poetry inspired by Lincoln's Black leaders, created and performed by the Lincoln NAACP Youth Chapter.
  • Virtually visit the Great Plains Black History Museum with its director, Eric Ewing.
  • Celebrate these leaders by adding your impressions to an original, community art project by ArtReach.
  • Let the live re-enactors of the "Descendents of Dewitty" take you back in time to the Cherry County settlement that was built literally from the ground up.
  • Travel in your imagination to Cherry County Nebraska, with live re-enactors of the “Descendants of DeWitty” (sponsored by Humanities Nebraska) who built their community literally from the ground up. DeWitty, later known as Audacious, was the largest and longest-lasting African American settlement in rural Nebraska. The settlers, including former slaves who had fled to Canada before the Civil War and their descendants, began to arrive in 1906-07, attracted by the 1904 Kinkaid Act's offer of 640 acres of free land in the Sandhills. Actual descendants of DeWitty re-enact stories of the settlement and its people, accompanied by historic photographs.

A Sign Language interpreter will be present during the event for deaf or hard of hearing persons.

Life of an Artifact: From Dirt to Cabinet

Date: Thursday, September 17, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Time: 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Location: Online, Zoom and Facebook

History Nebraska is excited to work with Morrill Hall and its monthly Science Café program to you in a virtual format!

Artifacts tell us a great deal about the history of people from the past. But what happens after an artifact is excavated? Join us for a special virtual event to celebrate Nebraska Archeology Month and discover the post-excavation history of local artifacts. History Nebraska Archeologist Nolan Johnson and University of Nebraska State Museum Anthropology Collection Assistant Katelyn Trammell will discuss the path of archeological material including the interpretation, research, care, and display of objects.

We will be broadcasting this program via Zoom and Facebook Live, so there are multiple ways to watch! To connect via Zoom, please register here for this FREE program, as space is limited. A connection link will be provided to you via email prior to the program. To join on Facebook Live, visit the UNSM Facebook page just after 7 pm to watch.

This presentation would be best enjoyed by ages 15+.
