Chapter 3 describes the process and experience of annexation as the unincorporated community of Meacham Park transitioned into a disadvantaged neighborhood within the affluent suburb of Kirkwood. This chapter then conveys the experiences and attitudes of Meacham Park residents regarding the loss of land, homes, and overall displacement when eminent domain was used to build a strip mall on over half of Meacham Park land acquired through annexation. It also discusses their overall perceptions of their new local government and its role in the annexation process as well as the role played by police in ensuring their adherence.

Keywords:   race, blacks, police, discrimination, annexation, Meacham Park, Kirkwood, Charles “Cookie” Thornton, segregation
