2017 Troost: A Vision for Peace & Action

Troost Ave. has long been considered a racial dividing line in Kansas City. Troost carries a rich history of peace and conflict that everyone in Kansas City must know.
In February of 2017, the Buchanan Initiative for Peace and Nonviolence hosted this conference to emphasize the importance of taking action as well as to highlight the work of KC’s community leaders who are fighting for justice in the region. This conference was co-sponsored by the┬áCenter for Global Studies and Social Justice; the CSJ Center for Heritage, Spirituality and Service; and the Black Student Union.
