278: The history of the Kansas City airport’s land

On this week’s episode of the Northeast Newscast, Publisher Michael Bushnell is joined in the studio by members of the Kansas City Museum’s Kansas City Airport Sacred Lands History Committee. Over the past few years, Lucille Douglass, Oralee Watkins-McKinzy, Dr. Gene Chavez and Anna Marie Tutera have been hard at work, documenting the history of the enslaved families who were buried on the land where the Kansas City Airport’s new terminal sits. Their research will result in a digital exhibit in the terminal, and opportunities for a traveling exhibit.
