Historians Work To Preserve And Highlight Black History In Idaho
But just as importantly, the state is also home to a resilient and proud community of Black and African American Idahoans. For some, their history in this majority white state goes back generations.
As we envision an anti-racist future in Idaho, it’s important to recognize their contribution to the past. Idaho Matters learned more about this history from Phillip Thomspon, Executive Director of the Idaho Black History Museum in Boise and outreach historian with the State Historic Preservation Office Dan Everhart.
