Synopsis

This volume provides an account of the black experience of the migration into Kansas drawn from the offspring of black settlers. Some of their ancestors came as slaves during the time of the "Bleeding Kansas" struggle to determine if Kansas would be free or slave. Others came during the Civil War and afterwards when "Exodusters" streamed to Kansas by the thousands to establish such settlements as Nicodemus and Dunlap, to serve as "Buffalo Soldiers" at Fort Riley and Fort Larned and to expand the sub-communities of Kansas City and Topeka through the 20th century. This primary source volume addresses the historical and contemporary lives of African Americans in Kansas and the impact of the African American presence on Kansas history.
