The colored citizens of Winfield (Cowley County) sent Governor Henry Allen of Topeka, Kansas, a resolution condemning the racial discrimination occurring in Kansas and the United States in 1919. The resolution asks the Governor to use his power to reverse these conditions. The resolution cites the Negro community's allegiance and loyal service to the U. S. Government, especially during World War I, as one reason supporting their right to equal citizenship.
