Programme Description

Every city in the United States has suffered from racial and economic segregation for the past 60 years. We Are Superman chronicles the history of this nation-wide epidemic by telling the story of Troost Avenue. Troost lies at the heart of hyper-segregation in Kansas City, Missouri, drawing a geographic line between black and white and rich and poor.

A growing movement unites to transform Troost from a dividing line into a gathering place. On the corner of 31st Street and Troost Avenue, a community of people are battling against prejudicial legislation, exploitative corporations, and a stereotype that has stigmatized the urban core since the suburban revolution. This is the story of their work, their vision, and how they are no longer waiting on a Superman to come and save them.
