Kansas City #TBT: Vietnam & Protest Legacy
The tradition of social justice fighting goes back a long way in this cowtown.
Description of this old school documentary montage for our late night denizens and shift work watchers . . .
"Marches and protests against the Vietnam War began as early as 1965 in the Kansas City region and continued for the following decade. Antiwar activities were not just limited to local college campuses like the University of Kansas and University of Missouri - Kansas City, but also arose in the parks and streets of our metro. Vietnam Veterans Against the War and other groups organized vigils, marches and demonstrations in their fight for peace."
