Kansas City 1968 MLK Riot Music Video
Take a look at this Kansas City creativity and history lesson which should provide some perspective on this this week of protest in Missouri that has captured the attention of the world.
1968 King Protest of Kansas City MO
"The first signs of disorder in the streets of Kansas City was a peaceful student march lead by Bruce R watkins, in response to the government failing to close schools across the city on April 9, the day of King's funeral. The riot was sparked when Kansas City Police Department deployed tear gas to the student protesters when they staged their performance outside City Hall."
And while this clip wasn't danceable in the least, it's certainly worth a look and just might evoke a greater understanding of the ongoing racial divisions and disparity that STILL inspire so much civil unrest.
