KSAL StaffSeptember 2, 2019

The Smoky Hill Museum is offering in-depth look at the lives of African- Americans in Salina during segregation.

According to the museum, Marie Johnson will use firsthand accounts and historical documentation to describe the racial discrimination and how the African-American community responded. She’ll also discuss life after that era faded away and how it has impacted African-Americans in the Salina community today.

Johnson is a local historian, graduate of Bethany College, a veteran and has written award winning historical scholarly papers.
