Kansas City MLK Signs Installed Today

After years of debate and a bitter fight that pit the Northland & Northeast KC against the urban core, Kansas City has finally reached a conclusion on tribute to an iconic civil rights leader.

The dedication is important but once again we feel like there was a missed opportunity here along the 63rd street corridor that could've united the city.

Still, there's no denying that today marks an important sign of progress and yet another indication of changing times.
