MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY BLACK ARCHIVES
Right now for the early morning let's take a look at an important aspect of Kansas City history.
The Black Archives Of Mid-America
This institution and documentary explaining their mission offer a unique glimpse of local life during a somewhat more dignified era wherein challenges to our community were not the subject of constant media debate but instead the focus of neighborhood engagement. Additionally, the black and white photography really captures the essence of our divided and divisive local history.
Take a look:
Statement from Director Cody Hunt:
"The mission of the Black Archives of Mid-America in Kansas City, Inc. is to collect, preserve and make available to the public materials documenting the social, economic, political and cultural histories of persons of African American descent in the central United States, with particular emphasis in the Kansas City, Missouri region. Black Archives of Mid-America is an educational resource and provides access to its collections for research, exhibition and publication to honor our community heritage and to catalyze public awareness."
Certainly something to think about tonight . . . And hopefully we'll have more BREAKING/EXCLUSIVE NEWS, discussion, debate, discourse, hateration and all kinds of good stuff coming up for the morning update . . . STAY TUNED!!!
