Join Dr. Carmaletta Williams, Executive Director of the Black Archives of Mid-America, and Dr. Valerie Mendoza of Washburn University for a virtual interview as they discuss Dr. Williams' Big Idea essay "Free Did Not Mean Welcome for My Family." Millions of African Americans walked away from the South after Emanicipation looking for freedom. For some it meant a journey to Kansas, a "free state." Discover how many realized that for Black people in Kansas "Free" did not necessarily mean "Welcome."  Read the full essay here: https://bit.ly/3eRWIu4
