The former director of the Kansas African American Museum in Wichita has returned to the job.
The museum announced Tuesday that Mark McCormick returned to lead the museum, beginning this week. He replaces Prisca Barnes, who resigned Dec. 27.
The Wichita Eagle reports McCormick was director at the museum for about eight months in 2009 before being replaced by Barnes.
McCormick is a former columnist at The Eagle and past communications director at the Kansas Leadership Center. He most recently was a reporter for the Springfield News-Leader in Missouri.
