A group of ten students, led by instructor Ann Dean, toured the eastern and downtown areas of Lawrence searching for our invisible history and capturing images to exhibit as documentation of some of Lawrence’s hidden past. The students photographed buildings, objects, and places that are significant to the people who built our community. Whether it was the Afro House on 10th Street, the AME Church on New York, the Shunganunga Boulder in Robinson Park, or the remnants of La Yarda near 8th Street in the east bottoms, these historic buildings and areas provided housing, a central meeting place, and a sense of community, ceremony, and importance to those living and working under segregated conditions. Our photo essay collection is a testament to those marginalized and underrepresented people of our community who helped make it what it is today. Stop by and visit our exhibit and learn more about the place we all call home.
