Nathaniel Morgan Memorial Commitee

Our mission is to encourage honest, compassionate dialogue about race in our schools and broader community by acknowledging the lynching of African American Nathaniel Morgan and subsequent acts of racial violence in Iowa. Toward this end we seek to create a memorial in a prominent, historically relevant site that promotes reflection and sustained educational activity. This memorial will demonstrate Dubuque’s commitment to understanding and rectifying racial wrongs and building an equitable, multicultural community.
