In recognition of Black History Month the Junction City Black Historical Society is putting on an event Saturday at the C.L. Hoover Opera House.
“It’s for the young and young at heart. And we’re going to be talking about some of the inventions that have influenced American history, music, and even some sports, some sports right here out of Kansas that have historical significance,” explained Phelps.
The event will also feature music, skits, and a guest speaker. This year guest speaker is Junction City native Dr. Crystal Davis, who will speak about black history and how it rolls into American history.
The event will begin at 1 pm at the C.L. Hoover Opera House located at 135 W 7th Street in downtown Junction City.
