Speaker Kellyn Toombs: I just finished my MA in Museum Studies at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia this August, and I just moved to Kansas City in September to work for Eisterhold Associates, Inc., an exhibit design firm that creates exhibits for many different museums around the country. I had a particular interest in working in medical/psychiatric history museums throughout my undergraduate and graduate career, which led to jobs and internships at the four different medical museums including the Glore Psychiatric Museum.

February 27 - TUE - Speaker Elyssa Ford 6:00pm - Show Me Missouri Speaker’s Bureau

FAS - 3406 Frederick Avenue

Title: The Kansas City Call and the Radical Message of the Women’s Page for the Midwest’s Black Middle Class. Abstract: The Kansas City Call has been one of the largest and must successful Black newspapers in the country. This newspaper was an important news source, community resource, and place of celebration for African Americans across the Midwest. During the 1950s, a decade of change for Black residents in the region, the paper’s depiction of Black women specifically relied on the politics of respectability, presenting women in traditional roles and highlighting their success in college and beauty contests. While these articles did not differ significantly from the presentation of white women in white-focused newspapers, to present Black women as models of success and beauty was a radical, activist message. This talk will discuss the presentation of Black women in the KC Call and explain how this traditional view of women was in fact radical when it featured Black women in these roles. Admission: FREE
