Profiles of African American Montanans with Dr. Ellen Baumler
Author and historian Dr. Ellen Baumler explores the stories, struggles, and accomplishments of African Americans in Montana. Although small in numbers, these pioneers came with the first waves of frontier settlers seeking new opportunities and left a rich legacy that has been largely unexplored. In her program, Profiles of African American Montanans, Baumler chronicles Black lives and contributions through historic photographs, headlines, art, and architecture. The program also touches upon the legacy of slavery, the segregation and subsequent integration of Montana schools, and African American culture in Montana.
