    Wide-Open Town: Kansas City in the Pendergast Era (editors discuss the new book)

    While Kansas City might appear a mild-mannered metropolis in the heart of flyover country, it belies a complicated history. In a discussion of the new book Wide-Open Town, its editors—Diane Mutti Burke, John Herron, and Jason Roe—discuss the era of the 1920s and ’30s dominated by political boss Tom Pendergast. Prohibition was rarely enforced and the mob was ascendant. But this “openness” allowed many in a community divided by race and class to challenge social boundaries....details >>

    Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World (documentary screening)

    Efforts to marginalize Native Americans and their culture couldn’t diminish their impact on popular music, from Delta blues and jazz to hip-hop.

The documentary “Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World” celebrates their influence, with perspective from contemporary stars who knew, played with, and were inspired by them.
