In the '40s and '50s, the Dunbar Theatre was where Wichita’s Black community gathered to embrace and celebrate its culture. And now, almost 60 years since it closed, the theater continues to make a comeback.

This week on The Range, we visit the Wichita icon to hear about its past — and its future.

Plus, we talk to a COVID-19 ICU nurse about what it's like on the frontline of the fight against the coronavirus.

KMUW News is a team of dedicated on-air and digital reporters working to tell the stories of Wichita and its residents.
