Latino Stories of Kansas

Latino Stories of Kansas/Historias Latinas de Kansas was a multi-dimensional statewide project, including events and special projects aimed at deepening the public's knowledge and appreciation of the vital connections between democracy, the humanities, journalism, and an informed citizenry through the lens of Latino immigration to Kansas. 

Latino Stories of Kansas/Historias Latinas de Kansas was part of the "Democracy and the Informed Citizenry" initiative administered by the Federation of State Humanities Councils. Humanities Kansas thanks the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for their generous support of the initiative and the Pulitzer Prizes for their support.
