About the Event
July 19, 1958, was the beginning of change in Wichita, Kansas, and eventually the nation. This was the first day of the Dockum sit-in, America’s first successful student-led lunch counter sit-in. Join Storytime Village as they celebrate the courageous Dockum sit-in participants with the newly published children’s book, PEOPLE, PRIDE, AND PROMISE: THE STORY OF THE DOCKUM SIT-IN, featuring special guests, ARISE, Roy Moye III, and the Wichita Griots Live!
