The "Carl G. Brewer Community Center" was re-dedicated this past week 

in honor of former Wichita City Mayor Carl Brewer.

We went through the LNC News archives and found this

interview with the former mayor from the NAACP event in 2010.

In 2007, Carl became Wichita's first elected black mayor, and was also reelected in 2011.

Former Mayor Brewer unfortunately passed away June 12th, 2020.

Listen to one of the first interviews we had former mayor Brewer, as he recalls visiting with a 

young African-American man inquiring about one day becoming mayor.
