    Racism in Kansas City Epub  Racism inPDF EPUB or racism book, kansas kindle, city mobile, Racism in pdf, Racism in Kansas City KindleFirst and foremost I would like to say that the time and effort put into this book definitely shows The research is admirable and sound and it is woven together in a way that paints a clear picture of where Kansas City came from and where we stand to this day As someone studying urban planning I highly recommend this to anyone interested in the field to gain perspective and for a look at what you are walking into not just in Kansas City but any large city in the United States Griffin does a masterful job as a historian and storyteller and has chosen a writing style that though at times can seem jarring ultimately adds to the narrative on deeper levels In conclusion if you can read this without getting either sad or furious you aren't paying attention

    Racism in Kansas City Epub  Racism inPDF EPUB or racism book, kansas kindle, city mobile, Racism in pdf, Racism in Kansas City KindleIf you live in Kansas City put this book on hold at your local library immediately It is exactly what I needed to read upon moving back to Kansas City Frankly I wish every city had such a book to tell the local history of racism and highlight how it still persists today“History is not defined by the steady march of progress There are years of progress and years of regress depending on how many individuals in a community actively promote euality and justice and oppose subjugation and violence Things do not necessarily get better as time goes on” Griffin writesI learned the history of Bleeding Kansas definitely; how Kansas became a swing state with votes doubling the actual population due to folks flooding the state to influence whether it stayed an abolitionist state or became a pro slavery one like Missouri I also learned accurately about the redlining that occurred around the 1950s in the city marking everything east of Troost black and west of

    Racism in Kansas City Epub  Racism inPDF EPUB or racism book, kansas kindle, city mobile, Racism in pdf, Racism in Kansas City KindleAlthough this book is likely to attract a limited readership due to its narrow geographic focus the themes that resonate throughout are depressing familiar to anyone who has bothered to look at the history of race in this country I have lived in KC for 15 years I live to the South on the city in Missouri but close to the lily white areas of Leawood and Overland Park However I work with the homeless in the city so I freuently travel downtown and through and within many of the areas discussed here Naturally most people who read this will know the city and th

    Racism in Kansas City Epub  Racism inPDF EPUB or racism book, kansas kindle, city mobile, Racism in pdf, Racism in Kansas City KindleI'm not sure I've worked through a book that was so hard for me to read At one point I had to put the book down from feeling overly emotional while being in a public place This book will and should stir up strong emotions in the reader I found the breakdown of historic periods to be helpful as well as Griffin's consistent filling in the reader as to the present day location of historic landmarks As a resident of Kansas City I'd recommend this work to any who are interested in this vital topic The reason the book didn't get five stars is due to a few factors It felt that the research was a bit less than perfect in some areas and the book seemed to be lacking in credibility There is a lack of professionalism that a book of this historic importance needs For example it's written by a young author without many credentials with a fairly un known publisher and one of the recommend

    Racism in Kansas City Epub  Racism inPDF EPUB or racism book, kansas kindle, city mobile, Racism in pdf, Racism in Kansas City KindleThe research is extremely sobering and shameful It is organized chronologically which is fine but this book really needed a better editor to better organize the information In some places there are whole paragraphs just recounting horrible happenings without without connecting to the larger story Veteran Kansas City activist Alvin Brooks write

    Racism in Kansas City Epub  Racism inPDF EPUB or racism book, kansas kindle, city mobile, Racism in pdf, Racism in Kansas City KindleA uick read but certainly not an easy one This book thought me a lot about slavery and systemic racism that wasn’t a part of any of my history textbooks I found myself constantly bringing up a maps app to orient myself with locations described There are also a few specific people and incidents I’ve bookmarked to learn about later It was hard to read the stark truths about my beloved hometown but much of what I read that covers my time living there rang true to what I saw and knewThe only reason for the four stars instead of five was the tendency to list facts figures dates instead of telling the story of the city and racism Reading about a handful of incidents and related stats from a five year period and then being taken back decades for additional stats about the same types of crimes was jarring in readability only

    Racism in Kansas City Epub  Racism inPDF EPUB or racism book, kansas kindle, city mobile, Racism in pdf, Racism in Kansas City KindleIt started well with a detailed history of slavery in the area and the post Civil War era It was good to learn about the race riots of 1968 The second half of the book was not as good Other than detailing the struggles of the school district it is mostly a laundry list of racist incidents that have hit the local news The author was not willing to admit that racism has decreased since the 60s and he said it was only made subtle Also he uotes comments from online articles about the Plaza Really the members of the bottom of the barrel of society write those comments and they are anonymous as well and in this book they are presented as evidence of pervasive racism
