About the African American Heritage Project

The Winding River African American Heritage Project brings together, under a single directory, historic sites, monuments, memorials, and museum collections related to the the African American experience in western Missouri, eastern Kansas, and southern Iowa and Nebraska.

We wish to acknowledge local and regional efforts that preceded or are actively underway at local and regional levels to document sites related to African American history. Many of these efforts far surpass the objectives of the Winding River African American History Project and often provide a more indepth review of African American historic sites in their particular area.
