Polling Place Observation Rules, Desegregating MU Law School, And Statehouse Blend Missouri
With Donald Trump urging supporters to watch for instances of voter fraud, we find out how the Jackson County Election Board ensures fair and free voting. Then, a 1938 Supreme Court ruling forced the University of Missouri Law School to accept black students, or create a separate school for them. The litigant, Lloyd Gaines, disappeared soon after, but his case made history. Finally, this week's Statehouse Blend Missouri features the candidates for state Senate District 17.
University of Missouri political science professors James W. Endersby and William Horner will discuss their book, 'Lloyd Gaines and the Fight to End Segregation,' at the Kansas City Public Library's Central Library at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 26. To RSVP, go to KCLibrary.org.
