AAHM: Documentary Screening: "A Street of Dreams"

In Room 111, Students are invited to enjoy a documentary screening of “A Street of Dreams” in recognition of African Heritage Month. Released in 1994, the film is a historical look at Omaha's near north side. Throughout its history, Omaha's near north side has been the neighborhood that succeeding generations of immigrants have moved into and moved out of eventually, until protective real estate practices forced blacks to stay. The history of the community includes lynching, riots and discrimination. It also includes a vibrant community with jazz and shops and entrepreneurs. With the recent emphasis on multicultural education, this program tells an important, but little-known story of Nebraska history.  Sponsored by:  Office of Student Engagement
