'18th and Vine is changing'
After years of fits and starts, Kansas City's historic 18th and Vine district is finally seeing private money flowing in, but longtime residents fear that redevelopment might price them out. Plus, a video about "white privilege" is shaking up a school district outside Wichita, Kansas.
Development in the Historic 18th and Vine district has lagged for decades behind the rest of Kansas City. That appears now to be changing — and fast — raising concerns among longtime residents and business owners about gentrification. KCUR’s Carlos Moreno brings us this story.
Fallout continues in the Derby School District, just outside of Wichita, over a video about racial profiling, white privilege, and discrimination shown to teachers and staff, after the principal was requested to issue an apology. KMUW education reporter Suzanne Perez talks to Up To Date host Steve Kraske about what was happening behind the scenes.
