A Long Road DocumentaryThis documentary highlights the experiences of five African American K-State icons. One desegregated a Kansas swimming pool, another integrated a neighborhood, and one began a football career as the first Black football player at Kansas State and ended it with the Green Bay Packers. Stories include Dr. Martin Luther King’s visit to K-State, the impact of his assassination, and a motivational segment that encourages us all, “If it is to be, it is up to me!” Click here to go to the Long Road Project page.
