About Us

Our Beliefs

We believe in a world where all people are treated equal.

Black Lives Matter. As Black Americans, we have a rich history in Lawrence and we would like to share that with everyone.

On June 19, 2021, at 1:00pm, we invite you to join us in a virtual celebration of our rich African American heritage. It will be a joyful, uplifting time as we journey through the history of our lives and the impact we have made in America and our very own Douglas County. All are invited to attend.

Please see additional information below.
