Buck Buchanan, Willie Lanier, Bobby Bell, Curly Culp, Otis Taylor... among others played here and loved it. In fact, most of them made KC their home and are still active in the community.
Nope its the truth, Kansas City in 1965 wasn't as friendly for African-Americans.

Curtis and Gale were, and remain, good friends. Gale asked for advice. Curtis told him that if he picked K.C., regardless of his resources, he could get a good house in a poor neighborhood or a poor house in a good neighborhood. At the time, Curtis says, 27th Street was pretty much the black-white dividing line in KC Moe. Chicago seemed more receptive to minorities; the living conditions Gale and then-wife Linda could get there topped what they saw in Kansas City.
