By the mid 1920s, racial conflict in Kansas was such that the Ku Klux Klan was building a membership into the tens of thousands. Newspaper publisher and author Marcet Haldeman-Julius became an advocate for African American college students across the state. Barrett-Fox will discuss how she surveyed, interviewed, and hosted students, ultimately taking her fight to the University of Kansas where she played a part in changing the institution’s racist policies.
