I am starting a discussion on the UGRR on the Western Frontier. Please comment or email me with topics you would like to see researched. You will receive my blog entry in your e-mail in the early morning. Please forward these on to interested persons. The more people we get subscribed, the better the discussions will be.
I have been focusing all my energy on my new film, Gangland Wire. This feature length documentary film tells the story of a Mafia investigation in 1970s Kansas City. I was assigned to watch some of these mobsters when I was a detective with the Kansas City Police Dept. Go to www.ganglandwire.com to see clips.
On May 11, 2013 at 2:00 P.M., Gary Jenkins will present a short video and a talk on the Immortal 10 and the Rescue of Dr. John Doy at the Kansas City Public Library, Westport branch, 118 Westport Rd., Kansas City, MO.
Take a summer trip on the Underground Railroad in a different manner. The Conner Prairie, a living history museum outside Indianapolis has a program that allows the participant to experience the sights, sounds and feelings of a Freedom Seeker. They employ actors to help create the environment through which the 19th Century escaping slave traveled. Another opportunity to travel the Underground Railroad in modern times can be found at the Hale Farm and Village in Bath, Ohio.
