Migration is Beautiful

Wednesday, September 15, 2021 to Thursday, October 14, 2021

1st Floor Gallery Display

Migration is Beautiful tells the story of immigrants to Iowa from Latin America in the early 1900s. It was created from the Mujeres Latinas Project, which started in 2005 at the Iowa Women’s Archives to collect and preserve primary source materials about the history of Latinas and their families in Iowa. The display highlights stories gathered from oral history interviews with Iowa Latinas, as well as their letters, memoirs, and photographs.
