On June 10, 1882, three black men were brutally lynched from a bridge over the Kaw River near downtown Lawrence. Ursla Minor, head of the local chapter of the NAACP, reported on the efforts of a local coalition to commemorate the three men. A permanent marker will be placed at City Hall in June near a remaining pier of the old bridge.

Minor is a strong advocate of citizen involvement in community affairs, serving as a Trustee for Lawrence Public Library and as a member of the Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Board for LMH. Minor is also an accomplished 3-D mixed-media artist.
