Our second annual Hip History Contest has begun! We invite students to creatively share 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. Check out the contest details and enter the contest—and let’s start Uniting Through History!
