Program Description

Event Details

Latinx immigrants have been an integral part of Iowa's history since the early 1900's and their contributions to civil rights, the military, and communities helped shape the state. The Migration is Beautiful Project shares their stories-drawing from interviews, oral histories, photographs, and historical documents. Learn how the project took shape and hear one family's story.

Migration is Beautiful is a digital humanities project drawn from the Mujeres Latinas collection in the Iowa Women's Archives at University of Iowa that highlights the journeys Latinas and Latinos made to Iowa and how the contributions of Latino communities shape Iowa's history of migration and civil rights activism to this day.
