StoryCorps in KC: Chandra and Nadine Blackwell
By Suzanne Hogan
Kansas City, MO – At StoryCorps recording booths across the country, friends and loved ones interview each other about their lives. Each Tuesday during Morning Edition, we'll bring you a story from the MobileBooth in Kansas City. Chandra Blackwell brought her mother, Nadine Blackwell in to talk about her involvement in the Civil Rights movement. Nadine's family was part of Brown vs. Board of Education, and she and her husband Albert Blackwell worked to end segregation in both the fire department, and Topeka area restaurants.
StoryCorps MobileBooth was stationed at 63rd Street and Brookside Boulevard, September 9, 2010 to October 2, 2010. StoryCorps in Kansas City is sponsored by Mid-Continent Public Library.
