Topeka 2022: A Photographic Opinion
7 to 10 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 25
As we approach the 20th anniversary of this divisive event, Pat Patterson wants to share the images and experiences of that day. “20 years ago, a strong sense of fear and uncertainty overcame me upon my arrival to “the tent” even though I had worked in law enforcement. My gears quickly changed. Bonita Gooch of The Voice newspaper and I arrived together. We checked in and the crowds had gathered and separated. Obscenities were being yelled in my face but law enforcement assured me that I’d be safe. Navigating the crowd was difficult. The smell of hatred was thick in the air, overpowering those who wanted unbiased love. Never had I experienced in my face opposition. I think at some point in all our lives it’s there. Maybe not so obvious. We were able to move around shooting from the hip, and return to Wichita feeling overwhelmed. I was a Witness to the White Unity Rally in Topeka, KS in 2002.”
