African-American Builders of Topeka

Our community has created a living exhibit that highlights the stories of African-Americans in Topeka and Shawnee County. The stories of our community builders do not end here. Our history is made every day!

As you walk through this exhibit you will discover people, their stories and the objects that are important to them. Their experiences help tell the story of our community.

Explore our stories, contemplate the timelines, and hear our StoryCorps interviews. Add your builder story to our community wall and help grow the exhibit.

African-American Builders of Topeka will be on display from January 19 – March 11, 2018.
