On April 29, 2022, a new tree will be planted on the UI Pentacrest—a sapling propagated from the tree that grew near the annex where Anne Frank and her family hid during World War II. Join in a year of events surrounding the planting.
Join us for the 2022 Obermann Humanities Symposium, Behind the S(cr)een: African Americans in the Entertainment Industries. The three-day event will take place April 21–23, 2022.
An informal speaker series held in various locations around Iowa City as well as in the cozy and collegial Obermann Library. Once per month during fall and spring semesters, we feature work of faculty and research staff, often in conversation with a thought leader from our community.
