S04 E16: The Black Archives of Mid-America with Dr. Carmaletta Williams

The mission of the Black Archives of Mid-America in Kansas City, Inc. (https://blackarchives.org) is to collect, preserve and make available to the public materials documenting the social, economic, political and cultural histories of persons of African American descent in the central United States, with particular emphasis in the Kansas City, Missouri region.

Please join us in welcoming Dr. Carmaletta Williams to the show as we talk about the special materials held by the Black Archives of Mid-America and the work this organization does in supporting genealogical research and educational programming. Dr. Carmaletta also shares her knowledge about the black history of Kansas City and the state – as well as the border war that erupted between Missouri and Kansas between 1854 and 1859 (yep, that really happened!).
