The Stauth Memorial Museum in Montezuma is presenting a discussion on “Ethnic Labor and Small Towns on the Rock Island Rail Line” at 2 p.m. Sunday in the community room of the museum at 111 N. Aztec St.

A presentation and discussion will be led by M.J. Morgan, director of research at the Chapman Center for Rural Studies at Kansas State University. She specializes in researching the voices and cultures of people who do not traditionally appear in standard textbook histories.

The presentation is in conjunction with two traveling exhibits the Montezuma museum is hosting called “Americans by Choice: The Story of Immigration & Citizenship in Kansas,” featuring photographs, quotes and documents on immigration; and “Immigration and Caricature: Ethnic Images from the John and Selma Appel Collection,” through the Michigan State University Museum.

Both exhibits are on display through Sept. 1.
