Midtown KC Now Luncheon, 6/15/23

June 15 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm


Topic: Steptoe Lives Initiative

After the Civil War, the Steptoe neighborhood just south of Westport filled up with freed slaves who were allowed to own and rent property in this area. While all but a handful of homes have now been destroyed, a group called Steptoe Lives is working on ways to commemorate the neighborhood and its rich history. Steptoe Lives consists of people who lived in Steptoe, have ties to it, live in the neighborhood today, and others interested in keeping its memory alive.

Our event will feature the following speakers:

  • Deitra Nealy-Shane
  • Kenneth Stone
  • Amelia McIntyre
  • Christal Alexander

Registration is required for this event. Deadline is noon on Tuesday, 6/13.
We do not take payment on-site day of event.
