Residence of Rev. Samuel W. Bacote, 2210 Kansas Avenue, Kansas City, Missouri
Photograph of the residence of Rev. Samuel W. and L. Jeanetta Bacote, once located at 2210 Kansas Avenue, Kansas City, Missouri. This vantage point faces west on Kansas Avenue between 22nd Street and 23nd Street. Pictured is Rev. S. W. Bacote watering his lawn and trees. Samuel Bacote was the pastor of Second Baptist Church, one of the oldest and largest black churches in Kansas City. As reported in the Kansas City Sun on September 13, 1919, Bacote's residence was bombed the previous week by "some miscreant who evidently is following out the propaganda of certain interests on the East side who do not want Negroes in that section of the city." Soon after Bacote moved to 2459 Tracy Avenue.
