Midwest Equity Assistance Center
Welcome to the Midwest Equity Assistance Center. The MEAC provides technical assistance, professional development, and information dissemination in race equity, gender equity and national origin equity to state and local educational agencies in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska. At the request of public school districts, including charter and magnet schools, center staff provide a variety of free services and resources, including professional development workshops, institutes, conferences, and in-service training for teachers, administrators and parents.
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.
