Harold L. Holliday was the first African American admitted to the Kansas City School of Law in 1952. He went on to be an active member of Freedom, Inc. A civil rights activist and a lawyer known for his fiery oratory, Holliday was an army veteran. He earned a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in economics in addition to a law degree.
Holliday was a steadfast Democrat and served as a member of the Missouri House of Representatives from 1965-76, where he helped pass public accommodations laws that opened up motels and restaurants to African Americans. The Kansas City Star described him as the “most talented and respected member of the General Assembly.” His death in 1985 has been described as the end of a legend for Kansas City.
