Another of the Chamber’s 5 Big Ideas is revitalizing the Troost Corridor. While the Chamber has ambitious goals for reinvigorating what has long been a blighted area of Kansas City, there are grassroots efforts already underway to transform parts of Troost. On 31st and Troost, there is a community of people who have stopped waiting for a superhero to rescue the neighborhood. They have a vision to transform the dividing line of Troost Avenue into a gathering place. They’ve even produced a film about their work. It’s called We Are Superman: The Transformation of 31st and Troost.
A screening of the new documentary We Are Superman: The Transformation of 31st and Troost, a film by Kevin Bryce will be presented Friday night at 7:30 at the Nelson-Atkins Museum Auditorium. A panel discussion follows the documentary. There is a five dollar admission charge. You can follow the progress of the film on the We Are Superman Facebook page.
