NECESSARY COURAGE presentation for Educator's Week

We are pleased to announce that the UI Press's managing editor, Charlotte Wright, and acquisitions editor, Catherine Cocks, will be presenting stories and ideas for lesson plans from Necessary Courage: Iowa's Underground Railroad in the Struggle against Slavery, by Lowell J. Soike, as part of Educator Appreciation Days.

They will be presenting Sunday, October 13, from 5:00-6:00 P.M. at the Cedar Rapids Barnes & Noble. Please stop by if you are able! In the meantime, join our Facebook event. We can't wait to see you there!

Praise for Necessary Courage

"For far too long, Underground Railroad histories have ignored the important role that Iowa played in the fight to end slavery. In a nice overview, Soike tells the stories of those individuals—enslaved and free, black and white, male and female—who had the 'necessary courage' to prevail against the tragedy of slavery."—Deanda Johnson, Midwest regional manager, National Park Service's Network to Freedom
