Walk the walk, talk the talk

Unite KC sponsored a Walk For Unity along Troost Avenue to give people a chance to meet and walk and talk with all kinds of people. . . trying to promote unity along the former Red Line that separated Black KC from White KC for many years.

    Dear Ellen,
    I so much enjoyed East of Troost because you captured my life from 1955-1965. I lived in the same general neighborhood in which you lived– between Prospect and Paseo and 73rd street. My cousin lived on South Benton a block south of your home. I graduated from Washington U law school, meeting my wife who was an undergraduate. Upon our return to KC, we moved north of the river. I had a political career, serving as an assistant attorney general, state representative and a member of the U.S. House of Representatives. We now live in the Washington, DC suburbs.

    A good source of possible book buyers would be the alumni of Southeast High. Various classes still have reunions and circulate email addresses. I know many SE grads would enjoy your book as much as I did.
    Looking forward to reading your next book.
    Best wishes,
    Tom Coleman
