Those with memories of Quindaro invited to share through
oral history project at Kansas City, Kansas Public Library

Freedom's Frontier National Heritage Area (FFNHA) and the Kansas City, Kansas Public Library invite people who have memories of Quindaro to share them during an oral history session at the Main Library, 625 Minnesota Ave, Kansas City, Kansas

This session of the Quindaro Oral History Project, the second in the series, will be held on Saturday, May 20, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Interviews will be recorded in the first floor meeting rooms.

The Quindaro Oral History Project grew out of Freedom's Frontier National Heritage Area, and the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kansas, working toward National Historic Landmark status with the National Park Service for the Quindaro neighborhood.

Quindaro Oral History Project sessions are videoed, and also transcribed for the library, and will be available for research, as well as preserving the memories and history of the families that called the neighborhood home.

Those needing special accommodations should contact Freedom's Frontier at least 48 hours in advance of program.
