Cooperation gets things done and the town of Langston is proof positive of that. Though it was named for John Mercer Langston, an African American educator and U.S. representative from Virginia, this pre-statehood settlement was founded by two men who came together with a common purpose. One was an African American legislator from Kansas who dreamed of building a state where others could escape discrimination. The other was a white landowner who worked with him to promote the town to newcomers by filing a town survey and plat in 1891.

What were the names of the men who worked together to create Langston?
