Kansas City's History. And Racism


What's fascinating is that, in spite of Kansas City's long and deeply held racism, which gave us the segregation of races which still exists today, in spite of this deep and deeply held racism, we still gave birth and rise to the likes of Charlie Parker Duke Ellington  and Satchel Paige.

Maybe in spite of ourselves.

Pretty incredible.
