As in many American cities, Kansas City hospitals, including Children’s Mercy Hospital (CMH), were racially segregated in the early 20th century. African Americans went to the Negro hospitals, where facilities were substandard and overcrowded. 2 The mortality rate for Kansas City’s black population was nearly double that of the country’s. 3 Children fared no better: the black infant mortality rate was close to double that of whites. A City Divided: The Racial Landscape of Kansas City, 1900–1960. Common causes of child death were prematurity, diarrhea, and pneumonia.

Sherry Lamb Schirmer's meticulously researched and sourced history of race in Kansas City, Missouri's urban planning and land use could have been a dry, lifeless academic work. Schirmer is a masterful storyteller, however, and she makes the people behind the restrictive covenants, City Beautiful plans, and sneaky (and overt) Jim Crow in the city's public places come to life in a smoothly paced narrative. Schirmer honestly describes and documents the racially driven decisions made by powerful people without preaching about the horrible outcomes that still affect KCMO. The resulting bold, painful baring of a hometown's dark soul should be required reading for its public servants, politicians, and students.
