Author Talk with Margie Carr: “Kansas City’s Montgall Avenue”

9/28 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

Margie Carr’s Kansas City’s Montgall Avenue: Black Leaders and the Street They Called Home is the extraordinary, century-old history of one city block whose residents shaped the changing status of Black people in Kansas City and built the social and economic institutions that supported the city’s Black community during the first half of the twentieth century. This single block was home to some of the most important and influential leaders the city has ever known.

Join us at the Watkins to meet the author, get her account of Montgall Avenue, and purchase signed copies of the book! This event is a partnership between the Watkins, the Raven Bookstore, and the University Press of Kansas.
