How Local History Informs the Present
The Lawrence 1970 Project is a community-wide endeavor to mark, commemorate, and illuminate the tumultuous events of 50 years ago, which deeply affected Lawrence, Kansas. Through a timeline and events listing, project partners will bring people together to remember and explore issues of race, civil rights, war, feminism, and the counterculture that touched off a painful, but in some ways liberating, year in Lawrence.
