Mon, 08/26/2013

LAWRENCE — The city of Lawrence invites University of Kansas football fans to park in downtown Lawrence for free and catch a ride to and from Memorial Stadium this football season. Downtown to Memorial Stadium service will be available for all seven home-game Saturdays. Fans can enjoy downtown restaurants and shops before and after the game.

Parking in the New Hampshire Street Parking Garage, 900 block of New Hampshire, and on the lower level and ramps of the Riverfront Parking Garage, 600 block of New Hampshire, will be free for weekend game days.

The service to and from Memorial Stadium is $1 for all passengers. The service will run two hours prior to kickoff and one hour after the game or when no additional post-game passengers are present. Signs on the buses will display #11 Downtown/Football Service.

Bus service will pick up and drop off passengers at only these four stops:

  • On the south side of Ninth Street east of Massachusetts (next to the U.S. Bank building)
  • In front of the Riverfront Parking Garage
  • On the west side of Vermont Street north of Eighth (in front of Douglas County Senior Services)
  • Memorial Stadium

Lauded race and class historian becomes KU Foundation Professor David Roediger’s award-winning research and writing has already transformed how historians view the growth of social freedoms in America though the intersection of race, class, ethnicity, and labor. Now Roediger, as KU’s first Foundation Distinguished Professor of History (http://bit.ly/1AbAqYw), will continue to break new ground in those fields as he leads KU’s departments of American Studies and History. Roediger likes to study historical flash points — where one particular change brings a cascade of wider cultural changes. His latest book, “Seizing Freedom, Slave Emancipation and Liberty for All,” makes the point that as slaves began freeing themselves across the South during the Civil War, their emancipation inspired and ignited other cultural movements for freedom — such as the women’s movement for suffrage and the labor movement for better working conditions and an eight-hour day. Understanding the individual stories of average people who wanted to make their lives better, including slaves or factory workers, is important to understanding the wider political movements and elections, Roediger said. “It's tempting to think that all the important political questions have been decided,” he said, “but actually people are constantly thinking about what freedom would mean for them.”
