Linda has spoken with 21 men who were in the CCC and shares their memories.  This event is free and open to the public.

"Creating the Black Utopia of Buxton, Iowa" on Wednesday, April 3rd at 6 p.m. at Quilted Treasures and Retreats (across from the Eddyville Raceway).  Speaker is Rachelle Chase.  This event is free and open to the public.  

"6-on-6 Basketball in Iowa:  Traditions, Transitions, and Legacies" on Sunday, April 28th at 2 p.m. at the Fremont Community Center (107 E. Main St. in Fremont).  Speaker is Jennifer Sterling.  For most of the 20th cenury, Iowa was known for its devotion to a unique form of women's sport known as 6-on-6 girls' basketball. As other states abandoned 6-on-6 in the 1970s, Iowa remained committed to this half-court game until 1993, when the final 6-player championship was held. This multi-media presentation recounts Iowa's 6-on-6 history, connects it to the development of girls' and women's sport in the United States, and welcomes audience members to share their own stories and collections.  This event is free and open to the public.
