What do they have in common?
At various points in their lives, each of them lived in Kansas. Brooks stayed for mere weeks, only living here for a month after she was born, while the others lived in Kansas for years.
Next week, on Wednesday, February 25, help close out Black History Month by joining HBW at Watson Library for a celebration of Black Writers with a Kansas Connection. From 3 - 4:30 p.m., come enjoy refreshments while you learn about the legacy of African American writers in the Sunflower State.
