Join us as we celebrate Black History Month with a free screening of I Remember 12th Street, a documentary film about Kansas City’s celebrated 12th Street, the subject of song and jazz legends, as told through first-hand accounts by people who lived through one of the most fascinating periods in the city’s history. Q&A with filmmakers Rodney Thompson and Stinson McClendon will follow the screening.

From the 1930’s to the 1960’s, Kansas City’s 12th Street was the center of life in a flourishing African American community. It was a thriving commerce and entertainment hub, full of retail shops and service businesses, mom and pop grocers, and a movie theater. Its restaurants and nightclubs set the stage for the legendary sound of Kansas City Jazz, drawing musicians from around the world. This isn’t just a story about a street, however, it’s the story of a place that sustained and shaped Kansas City’s African American history.
