Emporia Connection stages reunion


A look at the history of African Americans at Emporia State University highlights the Emporia Connection reunion, April 8 and 9.

The group gets together every two years to reconnect with ESU friends during a series of social gatherings. This year, a panel discussion, “Those Who Have Gone before Us,” will highlight the reunion’s activities.

A Saturday evening reception and dinner will feature keynote speaker Angela Bates, a descendent of the settlers of Nicodemus, the historic all-African American settlement in north-central Kansas.
