Event description

Description

Join us on Saturday, February 17, 2018 at 2p.m. to learn more about Missouri's Complicated Racial Past: Causes & Consequences. Historian and author, Gary Kremer, will focus on the ways in which African Americans and whites often interpret both the past and the present differently. These differing interpretations stem, in part, from different histories, which in turn, derive from, among other things, the fundamental realities of race. The goal of this presentation is to encourage individuals and groups to seek to understand the historical forces that have shaped their lives, as well as the lives of those with whom they come in contact. This event is free and open to the public.

Battle of Lexington State Historic Site is located 1101 Deleware Street, Lexington, MO. For more information about the event, call the site at 660-259-4654.
