Southside Placemaking: Innovative Approaches to Preserving Culture and Communities


The Southside Redevelopment Council and Community Lift Institute are hosting an important community conversation honoring history and legacy of land ownership of Black families in Leon County. The panel will discuss actionable steps for enriching vital communities today, explore opportunities for cultural placemaking, and investigate how redevelopment can not only recognize the history of the area but also empower current residents. The presentation will provide both the historic overview and actual steps of intentional cultural preservation and economic equity that can be applied to Tallahassee and beyond.

Please register to attend in person, or visit on the day of the event to watch the live presentation virtually. Funding for this program is provided in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Southside Redevelopment Advisory Council.
