World War 2, Kansas City, received an influx of Blacks (who fought in the war) arriving via Union Station (built-in 1914) to live. In the 1950s '60s intentional (legally accepted) efforts (blockbusting, redlining, white flight) were made to place Blacks 'east of Troost' & at the time no further south than 18th & Vine.
