The 2019 State of Black Kansas City
Four years ago, the Urban League of Greater Kansas City’s assessment of African-American well-being in the city was sobering. From health to social justice, key indicators trended downward. To what extent, if any, have they improved?
President and CEO Gwendolyn Grant leads a discussion of the Urban League’s 2019 State of Black Kansas City: Urban Education, Still Separate and Unequal. Its equality index identifies gaps between blacks and whites in education as well as health, social justice, economics, and civic engagement.
The event—co-presented by the Urban League of Greater Kansas City—features remarks by authors and other contributors to the report, which will be available to attendees.
