In a recent newsletter, we included the story of A.W. Roberson, a local man who worked for Civil Rights in Newton, Ks. After the article, John Thiesen, Mennonite Library & Archives, Bethel College, N. Newton, made us aware of a recording of a convocation that A.W. Roberson took part in in fall 1978. In this recording, he describes how he worked toward ending discrimination in the 1950s in Newton, Ks.
