One quick search of the word “heritage” and a few definitions pop up.
One struck a chord: legacy.
This month, from Sept. 15 through Oct. 15, is Hispanic Heritage Month, which is a time to honor Kansas City’s Latinx legacy. So, Flatland curated a list of community stories from the past several years.
Want to learn about the rich history of who helped build the city or the railroads strewn around the metro? Or maybe you’re curious about the leaders in education or politics, we’ve got that too. In the past several years, we’ve interviewed those in the Latinx community who are determined to bridge the gap in art, health, homelessness, education and more.
This is just a snapshot of what’s out there. There’s a story for everybody, including some from our KC Media Collective partners:

Manny Abarca podría ser el primer legislador hispano del condado de Jackson en casi una década
