Greater KC Black History Study Group

The Greater Kansas City Black History Study Group (GKCBHSG) is a branch of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH). Its mission is to educate its members and the community, deepening their understanding of African American life and history, with the belief that knowledge and pride in African American heritage will preserve African American culture for future generations. It seeks to create a diverse community understanding its sameness in humanity while respecting its cultural differences.
