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.

Location: Kansas City Public Library - Plaza Branch
