More Information on African American Heritage Trail KCMO
Kansas City’s African American heritage has a rich and long history beginning with first settlements at the Town of Kansas and expanding to small communities such as Steptoe, Hell’s Half Acre and Belvidere. As segregation became more prominent, the cultural significance of the 18th and Vine Area grew quickly. There are many sites related to civil rights such as the Swope Park Pool, Shelter #10, and numerous historic African American Churches. This project will connect all of these sites through a Heritage Trail which will tell the story of the African American experience in Kansas City. The project will rely on existing properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places, as well as other properties identified through research and public input. http://kcmo.gov/planning/the-kcmo-african-american-heritage-trail-plan/
