The Poindexter Village interpretive plan reveals and celebrates important place-specific stories in order to preserve both the physical site and the community’s memories. Exhibits will take a uniquely Afro-centric approach, inviting black artists to express a series of tales of the long African American history of the region, the Great Migration, the richness of black culture, community values, and African American cultural resources. The plan lays the foundation for the site’s transformation into a place where people can gather and share stories, helping to keep these places alive and growing for each new generations.
“The 106 Group brought a level of comfort and trust that allowed us all to go through this journey. The finished product took us in a direction that I wasn’t expecting and I appreciate the fresh and nontraditional recommendations.”
