Seg. 1: Kansas City Mayoral Candidate Phil Glynn. Seg. 2: Immigrant Women's KC Influence.

Mar 7, 2019

Segment 1: Phil Glynn says he wants to be Kansas City mayor because he'd done as much as he could as an activist.

Today, we learned why Phil Glynn thinks his background in business and activism has prepared him to make improvements throughout Kansas City as mayor. "Too much of the focus has been on luxury developments downtown, not on our neighborhoods," the candidate said.

Segment 2, beginning at 25:28: The contributions of immigrant women has been underappreciated.

Female immigrants have had their own historic role in Kansas City, but it's often overlooked. We talked with a University of Missouri-Kansas City historian about her mission to recognize these women's role in shaping our community.

Sandra Enriquez will present "Yes, We Can! Immigrant Women and Their Influence on Kansas City," 2 p.m., Sunday, March 10 at the Central Library, 14 W. 10th St., Kansas City, Missouri 64105. For more information visit KCLibrary.org.
