The Life of Edwin Overall North Omaha History Podcast, Omaha History, South Omaha History

    • History

Oftentimes, great leaders take their place in history. However, this right hasn't been given to many African American leaders, especially in Omaha. One man single-handedly roused a generation of political activism, social consciousness, and deliberate action to improve the conditions of newly liberated Black people who settled in Omaha when it was a very young city. This is the life of Edwin Overall.
