[MO] Black Archives of Mid-America

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Black Archives of Mid-America, Inc., one of the largest collections of black history and artifacts in the region, has been locked up tight for months.

Bars line the windows of Firehouse No. 11, the 75-year-old two-story building in the historic 18th & Vine district that houses the archives. Weeds bully their way through the concrete and asphalt around the building.

The archives, started in 1974 as a labor of devotion by Horace M. Peterson III, who died in 1992, has seen better days.
