Dayna Chandler grew up with only bits and pieces of Black history.

In school, she learned about slavery and the Civil Rights Movement but felt those lessons weren't entirely reflective of the Black experience — they're chapters of the nation's painful past pressed neatly into textbooks. Often the only Black student in her Iowa classes, Chandler remembered teachers putting her on the spot to comment on those pivotal moments — which, she said, she couldn't really speak to with much detail.
