Accessing the Internet is a major concern for all those who serve urban and poor communities of the United States. This press conference has been put together to announce the bridging of that digital divide by the installation of a Internet network system designed to provide low cost services to businesses and residents of the 18th
and Vine district and multiple locations in KC.
Along with this announcement, the Mutual Musicians Foundation International unveils its plans for this global Internet opportunity in its weekend activities celebrating the life of Kansas City Jazz great, Charlie “Yardbird” Parker.
Interviews will be available from representatives of the KC Freedom Network along with listings of the international festival.
