Rendering of the Iowa Civil Rights Trail

On this edition of Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe speaks with Charles Pearson, the driving force behind the creation of the Iowa African American Heritage Trail.

The first portion of the trail was dedicated earlier this month. It guides people through Waterloo and Cedar Falls, exploring significant places and moments in Iowa history – places and moments often left out of history books and curricula.
