Description

Take an in-depth look at the lives of African- Americans in Salina during segregation. Join Marie Johnson as she uses firsthand accounts and historical documentation to describe the racial discrimation and how the African-American community responded.  She’ll also discuss life after that era faded away and how it has impacted African-Americans in the Salina community today. Johnson is a local historian, graduate of Bethany College, a veteran and has written award winning historical scholarly papers.
