History Trail Launch

More than 30 people gathered at The Kansas African American Museum on Thursday, February 21, 2019, for the formal Launch and Introduction of The Kansas African American History Trail, which is funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.  Representatives from 5 of the 8 sites on the Trail were present to highlight their respective institution and provide commentary on the potential significance of the Trail…to their individual location AND the State of Kansas.  A brief review of the newly created website was also a part of the formal program.  Attendees also included members of the TKAAM Board of Directors and representatives from GoWichita, Fort Scott, the Kansas Historical Society and  the Kansas Tourism office in Topeka.
Project Coordinator, Ted Ayres, provides information about the Trail.
