Description

Register for this program online or call 913.826.4600.

The Past is Prologue is a bimonthly program that highlights topics often left out, glossed over, or misrepresented in our history books. This month, we will host a Q&A with filmmaker Kamiasha Moses-Tyner about her documentary film "Sumner High School: The Best Kept Secret." This film focuses on a crime in 1904 that instantly created a racial barrier in the Kansas City, Kansas High Schools. These compelling recollections of true stories and events demonstrate the power a single act of negligence can have over a community and a state.

Join us for a screening of this documentary film shortly before the program on Thursday, August 5 at 4:00 pm onZoom. Or, watch it on your own time using Amazon Prime Video.
