Mayor Sly James

Sly James is the 54th Mayor of Kansas City, Missouri. In the late 1960's, he was the lead singer in a band, and it was the opening act when Jefferson Airplane performed in Kansas City.

Mayor James served in the Marine Corp, graduated cum laude with a Juris Doctor degree, and was the first African-American partner in the large, prestigious Kansas City law firm for which he worked.
