In 1868, three years after the Civil War, 12-year-old Susan Clark of Muscatine, became the first African American child to attend a racially integrated school in the United States of America. It was the result of a lawsuit before the Iowa Supreme Court filed by her father, the great civil rights leader Alexander Clark.
The lecture will examine his life-long civil rights advocacy from his Underground Railroad work and his opposition to Iowa’s racial exclusion laws.
Leading the discussion will be Drake Law School Professor Emeritus Russell Lovell. Lovell’s public service commitment includes 45 years of civil rights work for the NAACP, including service as lead counsel in cases that desegregated the Indiana State Police Department and the Des Moines Fire Department. Over the years he has received numerous Outstanding Public Service and Civil Rights Awards from the NAACP, and a wide range of honors from Iowa Legal Aid, the Black Ministerial Alliance and others.
