Marc Rice, professor of music, is participating with 17 other scholars in a research projected titled “The Golden Age of Kansas City.” The project is sponsored by the University of Missouri—Kansas City and the Kansas City Public Library. This project examines the political and cultural history of Kansas City during the first part of the 20th century. For the project, Rice has written an article, “Kansas City on Tip-Toe: Charity, Politics, Dancing and Jazz near 18th and Vine in the 1920s.” This article is adapted from a chapter of his upcoming book on the representation of African American music in the black press. The project has two phases. On Nov. 5 and 6 Rice and the other scholars will gather in Kansas City for a roundtable discussion and workshop, focusing on each author’s submission. From March 31-April 2, a public conference will take place at the Kansas City Public Library, where Rice will deliver his paper. Subsequently, the papers will be published in a scholarly volume.
