Happy 90th Birthday Alvin Brooks

We would like to greet Mr. Alvin Brooks with a Happy 90th Birthday from Black Kansas City Magazine Formerly Minority Success.

A Lifetime of Public Service That Binds Us Together

Kansas City’s most beloved civil rights activist and public servant share the engaging stories of his life and career in this heartfelt. The inspiring narrative is inextricably linked to the nation’s past and present.

Few people have faced adversity like Alvin Brooks. Hee was born into an impoverished family, he nearly lost his adoptive father to the justice system of the South, and he barely survived a health crisis in infancy.

However, his greatest challenge was learning how to navigate life in a racist society and protect his beloved wife, Carol, and their six children. Brooks turned into a lifelong leader and a servant of his community.

From becoming one of Kansas City’s only Black police officers in the 1950s and the first Black department head in Kansas City government to founding the AdHoc Group Against Crime to meeting successive American presidents, Brooks has been at the forefront of today’s most pressing issues — criminal justice, civil rights, racial disparities, and local activism.
