The Dockum sit-in of 1958 in Wichita will have a memorial in its original building, now the Ambassador Hotel, for the first time because of a $50,000 grant from the Kansas Health Foundation to the Kansas African American Museum. On Tuesday, the hotel installed museum-quality prints of photos taken during the building’s construction. The Dockum Drug Store lunch counter stood in what is now Siena Tuscan Steakhouse in the Ambassador Hotel. gdunn@wichitaeagle.com
