The Latest: Kansas City to remove King's name from streetKansas City voters have overwhelmingly approved removing the name of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. from a city boulevard in favor of the street’s original name, The Paseo. Kansas City was one of the last large cities in the U.S. to name a street for King.
