Join us at the Nebraska History Museum at noon on November 21st for a fascinating installment of our Brown Bag Learning Series.

Hear about the lives of Omaha's legendary black athletes of the 1950s and 60s as award-winning journalist Dirk Chatelain shares from his new book, 24th & Glory: The Intersection of Civil Rights and Omaha’s Greatest Generation of Athletes. North Omaha’s vibrant and cohesive African-American neighborhood produced athletes who rose out of segregation as racial tensions grew. Book-signing to follow at the museum store.
