    Take a stroll through the 18th and Vine district and discover Kansas City’s jazz history with American Jazz Museum poet-in-residence and former Community Curator Glenn North. You’ll pass the home of the Mutual Musician’s Foundation, the former Parade Park Stables that now house the Black Archives of Mid America, the historic Gem Theater, the iconic “Bird Lives” bronze statue of jazz legend Charlie Parker by renowned sculptor Robert Graham and many more sites of compelling interest to Kansas City’s jazz age history.

     

    Walk & Talk Tour: Valentine Neighborhood with Guest Host Bill Worley

    Sunday, June 16 | 2 p.m. | $8

    Meet at the Uptown Shoppes, 3600 Broadway, Kansas City, Missouri.

    Bottled water included. Headsets supported by the H&R Block Foundation.


    Kansas City’s historic Valentine neighborhood is home to quaint stone houses and charming locally owned businesses. It’s hard to imagine that just 150 years ago, this was farmland managed by one of Kansas City’s founding families. Travel through this historic neighborhood with Kansas City historian Bill Worley. The only people who could have known more than Mr. Worley about the neighborhood’s history is the McGee Family who farmed there before 1880.

    P.s. I cannot get a hold of anyone regarding whether or not we need to purchase advance tickets or if we can buy them there the day of, but I will keep trying and let everyone know, however we do need to register, so if you plan to attend, go to the link and do so.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
