KCUR's extensive Beyond Our Borders
project explores the history and impact of the most distinct lines in Kansas City. For more than a year, we’ve been rediscovering Troost Avenue, the State Line, the Wyandotte-Johnson county line, and the Missouri River. Our hope is that we now better understand how these borders affect the current Kansas City experience and what’s being done to bridge or dissolve critical divides.
Here, you'll find a compilation of our work and our discussions with communities across the region. You also can hone in on a particular border:Troost AvenueThe State LineThe Wyandotte-Johnson county lineThe Missouri RiverSTORY IDEAS:
