This park is named after a lawyer who became president of the Wichita chapter of the NAACP.
He helped desegregate restaurants, swimming pools, aircraft companies, and local government agencies.
This park sits on the former site of the Woolworth building where one of the first organized lunch counter sit-ins took place at the Dockum Drug Store in July 1958.
This park project, which includes private donations and matching public funds, will create a “pocket park” at the site of the former Woolworth building. Plans include ornamental paving, lighting and a fountain, sculptures and seating.
