Defining Black Wichita, Part 2 - Heart of the Community 1940s-1970s
Thursday, October 22
The Kansas African American Museum

Defining Black Wichita is a three-part exhibition series that chronicles the evolution of the African American community in Wichita, Kansas. Each exhibition within this series depicts the education, social endeavors, religion and businesses that watered the African American community, a hallmark in the greater city of Wichita during marked periods of time over the span of 150 years.

In this second installation of “Defining Black Wichita,” the museum explores the community’s shift from “The Black Belt” downtown to the “Heart of the Community,” the Historic McAdams/Dunbar neighborhood, beginning at 9th and Cleveland streets and extending to North Grove and Hillside. This migration ushered in a strong sense of solidarity amongst African Americans that bled over into all aspects of life. During this era, residents faced racial inequality head on with the creation of inclusive businesses, pioneering protests and boycotts, and the establishment of community traditions that drew our neighborhoods closer together.
