904. Indy Historical Marker Working On Funding

There is a funding project underway to recognize an early Indianapolis medical pioneer. Go to GoFundMe and kick in a few bucks. It's amazing how many Indy historical figures have been overlooked by the "Power Clique." Us common folks can change some of that!

902. Anyone know of Stephen's Cafe, Indianapolis, 1945-48?

Gloria Durland Slater
I'm looking for information about a restaurant called Stephen's Cafe. I have photos of employees posing outside on the sidewalk, you can clearly see the name on the bldg and that it was a corner bldg. The yr would likely have been abt 1945-48. My mom was a wait see there. Wondering if any family of owners or other employees are still around? This is a long shot! Thanks,

901. African American Life and History

I attended the Black Migrations program (see previous post) and had a really good time. I learned some perspectives on American history that were from a different direction. Nichelle Hayes put together a great program; Professor Conley was outstanding. As a follow up to that program, some black genealogists might be interested in the group below that is just starting up in the Indy area.
