Iowa African American Hall of Fame Inductees
Since 1995, the Iowa African American Hall of Fame (IAAHF) has been selecting the most influential black Iowans to be recognized for outstanding achievements. Guest host Dennis Reese talks with the three inductees selected for 2013: Jane G. Burleson, Betty Jean Furgerson, and William B. Hood, Jr. The IAAHF is housed at the Black Cultural Center at Iowa State University. Since its inception, more than 50 people have been chosen for this honor, including Iowa State Agricultural College graduate George Washington Carver.
