Endless Possibilities

Trace Iowa’s African American history from its origins in western Africa to the present—through slavery, the Civil War, the Underground Railroad, segregation, and the Civil Rights Movement—at the African American Museum of Iowa’s permanent exhibit, Endless Possibilities.

Along the journey you’ll explore the diversity of Western Africa, the torturous journey aboard a slave ship, the quest for freedom, the struggle for equality, and the unique history of African American communities across Iowa.
