In the Central District, the Liberty Bank Building stood as a testament to the resilience of a community facing redlining and racist disinvestment.
With the original building gone, a coalition of non-profits formed to make this historic site a model of community-led development, designed to address displacement of the African American community from the Central District.
Representatives from Africatown, Byrd Barr Place, Capitol Hill Housing, and the original Liberty Bank will share their inspiration for the project that they developed in partnership with the Black Community Impact Alliance.
Learn about the challenges and successes of this model of large-scale civic collaboration.
Come early for a bite to eat at the South Lake Café before the program, open until 7 pm.
