The current Negro Creek in Kansas City was used during the Underground Railroad to help escaped slaves from Missouri (a slave state) make their way to Lawrence, Kansas (a free state and abolitionist stronghold) to start a better life. Why continue to hold on to such an offensive and racist name of something that was used as a integral part of our history and allowing people to finally find their freedom?

Please sign to help change the name from something so disgusting to something that will preserve and honor this historical location.  Freedom Creek has a much better ring to it, doesn't it?
