IF YOU MISSED MR. SIMON ROBERTS CHECK THIS OUT!

Thursday night at the Davenport Public Library - Main Street, Mr. Simon Roberts impressed the crowd with his humor and told about what it was like to be the first African American to claim a national collegiate wrestling title.  Roberts won the 147-pound title at the NCAA championship for the University of Iowa in March 1957.

Be sure to visit the exhibit that was unveiled at the event, which showcases the history of African American milestones in collegiate sports in Iowa.  The exhibit will be displayed through Saturday, June 13 at the Main Street Library (321 Main Street).


Watch a little of his presentation from last night’s event!
