Nick Haines discusses the Chamber’s Big 5 initiative to Grow KC’s Medical Research with Dr. Patrick James. We continue our series “Women and Girls Lead” with a profile of Pastor Alice and the Emancipation Station. We look back at the history of Channel 19 which has been chronicled in a new book by Ed Matheny Jr. called The Audacious Rise of KCPT. And we go behind the scenes with Such Subtle Beauty
