Kansas City, MO – We celebrate one year of KC Currents, and talk to our theme song composer, MC and hip hop artist Approach (pictured at left with Delores Jones). Plus, voices from a rally against illegal immigration, and Professor Don Matthews discusses UMKC's relationship with black Kansas City. Also, Coalition for Justice in the Maquiladoras Director Martha Ojeda talks about the impact of NAFTA and immigration policy on Mexican factories.

KCUR serves the Kansas City region with breaking news and award-winning podcasts.
