Sunflower Journeys Program 1310
Centennial Celebrations: Tom Averill and Dale Easton of Topeka review the manner in which Kansans celebrated the state’s centennial in 1961. An epic historical pageant held in Topeka and Wichita told “The Kansas Story,” highlighting positive elements of our history and neglecting to mention others. Racial Desegregation: The Jayhawk, a private swimming pool in Lawrence operating at a time when there was no public pool in the city, became the focus of local desegregation efforts aimed at achieving equal access for all. Campus Unrest: Sunflower Journeys looks at protest activities on the University of Kansas campus in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. Rusty Monhollon and Tim Miller describe how political and social unrest spilled off the campus and into the surrounding community.
