For Mayor Sly James, this has been a particularly busy time. On Tuesday evening, he gave his State of the City Address, which we discuss today, along with a bond proposal James says will trim, but not eliminate, a backlog of public works projects in Kansas City, Missouri.

A lot of people see Black Lives Matter as today's civil rights movement ... but not necessarily the Kansas Citians who actually participated in the civil rights movement. Is there a rift in KC between an old guard and new in black activism?

During the first half of Wednesday's Central Standard, a discussion about broadening artistic learning opportunities for adults.

Then later in the hour, since it's that time of year for students... we'll talk about preparing for the ACT and SAT. Hear about a program aiming to level the playing field with college prep services for local low-income and underprivileged students.
