Troost Festival

Troost Avenue has been a symbol of segregation in Kansas City for a long time. But some people who live and work there are trying to recreate its image this weekend with a street festival. KCUR's Sylvia Maria Gross met Father David Altschul* on the corner of 31st and Troost.

Kansas City, Missouri – The Troost Festival will take place Saturday, May 14 on Troost between 31st and Linwood. Events will include music, dance, art, fashion and what organizers are calling a coffeehouse, a kind of forum to discuss community issues.
