Teach Black Kids Black History

An excerpt from King Leopold II message to Belgian Missionaries going into the Congo in 1883

“REVERENDS, Fathers and Dear Compatriots:
The task that is given to fulfill is very delicate and requires much tact.
You will go certainly to evangelise, but your evangelisation must inspire
above all Belgium interests.
Your principal objective in our mission in the Congo is never to teach
the ni***rs to know God, this they know already.
They speak and submit to a Mungu, one Nzambi, one Nzakomba, and what else I don’t know.
They know that to kill, to sleep with someone else’s wife, to lie and to insult is bad.
Have courage to admit it; you are not going to teach them what they know already.
Your essential role is to facilitate the task of administrators and industrials, which means you will go
to interpret the gospel in the way it will be the best to protect your interests in that part of the world.
For these things, you have to keep watch on disinteresting our savages from the richness that is plenty
(in their underground. To avoid that, they get interested in it, and make you murderous) competition
and dream one day to overthrow you.
Your knowledge of the gospel will allow you to find texts ordering, and encouraging your followers to
love poverty, like “Happier are the poor because they will inherit the heaven” and, “It’s very difficult for
the rich to enter the kingdom of God.”
You have to detach from them and make them disrespect everything which gives courage to affront
us.

General information

Black History Tour at 18th and Vine showcases how the Civil War began in Kansas City. From York who was a scout on the Lewis Clark Expedition, the Dred Scott case, the law of 1847 that made it illegal to teach blacks slave or free how to read, the Fugitive Slave Act, the First Kansas Colored Infantry and the Kansas Jayhawks, the terror and trechery of William Quantrill, Bloody Anderson and the bank robbing Younger, James Gang to Penn School which was the first African American school west of the Mississippi to the Underground Railroad in the Quindaro Ruins. Black history runs deep into the city of Kansas City. The tour also highlights the world famous corner of 18th and Vine made famous by Big Joe Turner, Satchel Paige, Julia Lee, Baby Lovett, Josh Gibson, Jesse Owens, Joe Louis, Count Basie, Lester Young, Mary Lou Williams, Ella Fitzgerald, Lena Horne, James Cool Papa Bell, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Coleman Hawkins, Duke Ellington, Jay McShan, Claude Fiddler Williams, Julia Lee, Charlie Parker, Ben Webster, Lester Young and Oran Hot Lips Page to name a few. It can even be argued that the Civil Rights movement started here with the signing of Jackie Robinson to the Brooklyn Dodgers, while he was playing for the Monarchs. Learn why 18th and Vine was 18th and Vine and was a magnet for all entertainers, athletes and people looking for a good time all over the world and how we had a large role in Kansas City being referred to as Paris of the plains....
