24 in stock
A history of African American settlement in Stafford County was largely forgotten or ignored for decades. Leadership from unusual places recently helped preserve and elevate that past. Descendants of the Exodusters returned to central Kansas this past fall for a homecoming weekend to establish connections with once unknown ancestors. The event proved emotional for both visitors as well as residents trying to come to terms with the good and bad of their local history.
