Alexander Clark’s Legacy: Elevating His Story
Thursday, February 16, 2023
Several projects are currently underway to introduce the Alexander Clark story to new audiences, demonstrate his national significance, and broaden understanding of Clark's leadership in his own time.
Join author Rachelle Chase and local historian Dan Clark, who serves on the Alexander Clark Foundation, for a discussion on efforts to reach school children, scholars, and the general public with the story of this African American Muscatine man who pushed for change starting in the mid 1800s. Rachelle Chase is currently completing the middle school book, The Time I Was Susan Clark. Dan Clark is nearly a year into his weekly Muscatine Journal
column spotlighting Alexander Clark.
In addition to discussing his own research and writing, he will share details on current efforts to obtain national significance for the Alexander Clark House and on connections with scholars who are researching Clark.
