How a Kansas town became one of the nation’s first majority-Black farming communities


The wave of migration across the U.S. in the mid-1800’s included people looking to live in open spaces, with land to grow crops and the opportunity to have a better life.

Fred de Sam Lazaro reports on one Kansas town that was established as a result as part of our Black History Month coverage and ongoing series, “Race Matters.”
