TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY EAST SIDE LEADERS PROTEST FOR SWOPE PARK EQUAL ACCESS TODAY!!!
This morning there's word of frustration over equal access to a historic Kansas City park.
To wit . . .
EAST SIDE ORGANIZERS ARE LAUNCHING A SWOPE PARK PROTEST AND CITING A LACK OF ACTIVITIES AND INVOLVEMENT FOR THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN COMMUNITY IN THE ADMINISTRATION OF THE PARK!!!
Via social media, one organizer notes:
"Besides fishing, a picnic and maybe the zoo . . . WHAT ELSE BLACK IS THERE TO DO?"
Again complaints include park administration, zoo free day timing and programs for the urban core with community input and access.
Clearly, nearby residents seem to feel that offerings at Starlight don't speak to their community and recent encroachment into youth sporting activities don't take their interests into account.
The protest is slated for 69TH & Elmwood around 9:30 in the AM.
