Info: The story of Kansas has largely been a story of immigration. Join Matthew Sanderson as he explores the history of Kansas immigration. He’ll compare past and current trends, and look at the benefits and challenges communities face when new people move in. Sanderson will also discuss how new cultures become part of their community as well as the impact they have on that community. Sanderson is an associate professor of sociology at Kansas State University. This free presentation is presented by the Smoky Hill Museum, Thursday, August 2, from 5:30-6:30 p.m.
