Trail to Promote African-American Legacy at Kansas Sites

(Photo credit:

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A trail to promote African-American history at Kansas sites has recently received a grant for more than $134,000 from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The Wichita Eagle reports that the Kansas African-American History Trail will be linked to 10 sites in the state that are important to the African-American legacy. Some of the proposed sites for the trail include the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City, the Buffalo Soldier Monument and museum at Fort Leavenworth and the community of Nicodemus. Nicodemus was Kansas's only all African-American community and is listed as a National Historic Park site. Kansas African American Museum director Mark McCormick says other site histories may be added as the trail progresses.
