UNO Libraries is hosting the 25-piece photo exhibit, Descendants of DeWitty NE, which shares the history of the 1860s Black homesteaders through the voices of their descendants. DeWitty was located in the Sandhills of Nebraska and was a haven for formerly enslaved and freed Blacks. Photos and text explore the lives of individual homesteaders and their families, the community of DeWitty, and the legacy of the land, the last piece of which was sold in 1993. The exhibit will be on display in the Osborne Gallery from September 1- November 7, 2021. The gallery is open during Criss Library’s regular hours of operation. Learn more about the Descendants of DeWitty NE organization and history through their website, and by visiting the gallery exhibit.
