Author Matt Holland talked about Ahead of Their Time: The Story of the Omaha Deporres Club. In his book he recounts the club’s fight for equality and the resistance it faced from both the black and white community as well as the changes they were able to make in Omaha.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2015 LCV Cities Tour” in Omaha, Nebraska, from May 7-13 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Cox Communications local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
