Description

80 Years of the Omaha Star
2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the only remaining African American newspaper in Omaha: the Omaha Star. To date it is the longest running newspaper founded by an African American woman. Known for her trademark white carnation corsage, Mildred Dee Brown was the matriarch of Omaha’s Near North Side—a historically black part of town—and an iconic city leader. Her remarkable life, a product of the Reconstruction era and Jim Crow, reflects a larger American history that includes the Great Migration, the Red Scare of the post–World War era, civil rights and black power movements, desegregation and urban renewal. Within the context of African American and women’s history studies, Dr. Amy Forss will examine the impact of the black press through the narrative of Brown’s life and work. Space is limited and registration is required. Register online at DurhamMuseum.org, by phone at 402-444-5071, or email reservations@ DurhamMuseum.org. Regular museum admission applies; free for members.
