Event description

Description

“Unigov: The Creation of Modern Indianapolis and Its Suburbs,” the final presentation in a summer lecture series hosted by the Indiana State Library, will take place on Saturday, August 10, 2019 at 11 a.m. Nicole Poletika, a historian with the Indiana Historical Bureau, will discuss Unigov, legislation that merged the governments of Indianapolis and Marion County in 1970. While Unigov succeeded in making Indy a “top tier city,” it created enduring socioeconomic disparities amongst Marion County communities. Poletika will be focusing on these disparities, in addition to examining how Unigov helped spur the rise of Indy’s affluent suburbs. Those interested in attending may register here. Registration deadline is Wednesday, August 7, 2019.

The lecture series, focused on history and genealogy, will take place at the state library on the second Saturday of June, July and August, with each one-hour presentation beginning at 11 a.m. Light snacks will be provided and each lecture is eligible for one LEU for Indiana librarians. The lectures are free and registration is required.
