Brown v. BOE Mural at the Capitol Screening & Discussion
February 16 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Join us for a FREE screening of the new KPTS documentary, “Brown v. Board of Education Mural at the Capitol,’ hosted by the Kansas African American Affairs Commission, TKAAM and KPTS Channel 8.
Last May, the new Brown v. Board of Education Mural was unveiled on the third floor of the Kansas State Capitol. It’s special because it illustrates the important role Kansas played in the integration of our nation’s schools. To celebrate this new mural, the Kansas African Affairs Commission worked with KPTS to create a documentary about how the mural came to be, including community advocacy, fundraising, and creation and installation of the mural.
At this event, we will screen the 30-minute film, then there will be a panel discussion about the project moderated by Kenya Cox, Executive Director of the Kansas African American Affairs Commission. Panelists include: Charles Baptist, former NAACP State Conference President; Michael Young, Mural Artist; and Senator Oletha Faust-Goudeau – Senate Minority Whip and District 29 Representative.
Light refreshments will be served. This event is FREE and open to the public. No R.S.V.P. Required. Please park in the garage across the street from the museum.
If you are unable to attend this event, “Brown v. Board of Education Mural at the Capitol,” will air on KPTS – Channel 8 at 8:30 p.m., Feb. 22, 2019.
