EXTENDED INTERVIEW: Film Explores History of Segregated Medicine in Kansas City
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Up until the 1950s in Kansas City, if you were sick, the color of your skin determined where you could go for care. A new documentary commissioned by Truman Medical Centers, From Separate to Equal: The Creation of Truman Medical Centers, explores the history of segregated medicine in Kansas City. KCUR's Elana Gordon recently caught up with the film's creators, Kevin Willmott and Greg Hurd, who previously made Confederate States of America and The Only Good Indian. Above is an extended conversation with the filmmakers, which aired during KC Currents this week.
Funding for health care coverage on KCUR has been provided by the Health Care Foundation of Greater Kansas City.
