Musical guest: Heath Church (https://www.facebook.com/heathchurchofficial)
Community moment: Andy Beals
Featured speaker: Gary Jenkins, “War in the River Quay: A Study in Urban Renewal”

Gary Jenkins will discuss the rise and fall of a 1970s grassroots development of the neighborhood around Kansas City’s City Market. He is in a unique position to examine this segment of our history. He was a young police officer assigned to patrol the area around the City Market during the early development. He was later assigned to the Kansas City Police Intelligence Unit, where he became part of the investigation into organized crime and their attempts to infiltrate this family-oriented entertainment zone in the later 1970s.
