Kansas City African-American gospel music
Paul Wenske wrote wrote a wonderful piece on African-America gospel music and the Kansas City music scene.
Paul and his family have been working several years on a documentary film on the subject and have traveled widely doing research, interviewing musicians and organizing concerts.
Along the way they have collected stories, photographs and help preserve a significant part of near history.
