Heart of the City

Lincoln Prep Academy faces obstacles on and off the field to seize a state championship.

Lincoln Prep, Kansas City’s premiere school for Black excellence, began last year with the best football program in school history. While the team has its eyes set on a state championship, the city is facing the most violent year it’s seen in decades and local alumni may soon be priced out of the neighborhood.

Heart of the City is a local public television program presented by Kansas City PBS.
