The Women Who Started Children's Mercy, And Kansas City's Globe-Trotting Jazz Vocalist
At the turn of the 20th century, two sisters who were determined to provide medical care to Kansas City's underserved kids founded what became a local institution. Today, we learn about the women behind Children's Mercy Hospital. Then, jazz vocalist Deborah Brown reflects on her Kansas City roots and a music career that's led her around the world.
The Deborah Brown Quintet performs as part of Johnson County Community College's Winterlude Series at the Polsky Theatre at 7 p.m. on Sunday, January 28. Visit JCCC.edu for more information.
