TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! COMING SOON: KANSAS CITY JOURNALIST ELITE TO DISCUSS KANSAS CITY RACE ISSUES!!!
This is an important discussion that even more denizens among the Kansas City media elite need to have . . . Here's a note an important upcoming conversation:
City Renewed | A Lecture and Forum on Race Issues in Kansas City
"Join us at Redeemer Fellowship on March 11 at 6:30 pm for City Renewed, a lecture and forum on race issues in Kansas City. The Kansas City Star columnist Lewis Duiguid, The Kansas City Call columnist Eric Wesson, and Urban League of Greater Kansas City president and CEO Gwen Grant will offer their personal and professional assessments of our city’s deeply racialized condition. Redeemer staff member Brian Key will also lead a moderated discussion to better understand how we might be able to step into these issues."
We note Gwen Grant as part of the journalist given that she's now one of Kansas City's top pundits thanks to her appearance on KCPT's Ruckus.
Even better, we really like the angle the forum seems to be taking:
"Whether overt or subtle, Kansas City has a long history of racial segregation, discrimination, and violence. City Renewed seeks to engage underlying social, cultural, and systemic issues and consider what it looks like to pursue the welfare and renewal of our city together."
