Coe Library at the University of Wyoming to host traveling exhibit on Empire, Wyoming

University of Wyoming Libraries will host a traveling exhibit called “Empire: A Community of African Americans on the Wyoming Plains,” from January 30 through March 3, 2017. The exhibit is on loan from the Wyoming State Museum in Cheyenne, and outlines the story of a group of African Americans who settled in Wyoming in 1908 to build a self-sufficient, autonomous homesteading community called Empire as a haven from the racism and racial violence that infected every aspect of American life in the early 20th century. The Alliance for Historic Wyoming published a profile on Empire last year from UW American Studies graduate student Robert Galbreath who helped create the exhibit.

Downtown Casper will never be the same after this unique mid-century modern tower is torn down. You can read more about the tower and the bank building here.
