  • Clarence Lang, professor, department of African and African-American Studies, The University of Kansas
  • Emanuelle Berry, reporter, St. Louis Public Radio

People don't make cameos in news stories; the human story is the story, with characters affected by news events, not defined by them. As a columnist and podcaster, I want to acknowledge what it feels like to live through this time in Kansas City, one vantage point at a time. Together, these weekly vignettes form a collage of daily life in Kansas City as it changes in some ways, and stubbornly resists change in others.
