Welcome to the Racing Iowa Project!

When we look at the level of individual communities, Iowa has much to offer in terms of racial diversity, both historically and today. This project seeks to make visible the living and historical resources in the state of Iowa that can serve to inspire new courses and conversations related to race. Additionally, this project is intended to improve the social networks and sense of belonging for individuals of color by connecting them with other communities of color in the state.
