Our second annual Hip History Contest has ended! Students creatively shared the history of Buxton, Iowa—the 1900 coal mining town of 5,000 residents, of which 40%-55% were African American—through the arts.
In Buxton, African Americans were leaders in the community and Blacks and whites were treated equally. Buxton is a great example of unity. Hip is a great way to describe the fun way students will share Buxton’s history to win prizes. Judges are currently picking this year’s winners, which will be announced July 1st. Please check back then!
