Partners in Civic Innovation: The Liberty Bank Building Project


Wednesday February 13


6:30 PM  –  9:00 PM

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.

Arrive at 6:30 pm to view art that will be on display in the new Liberty Bank Building, and enjoy samples of food from That Brown Girl Cooks!, a Liberty Bank Building business tenant. The conversation will begin at 7 pm.

To request disability accommodations, email two weeks in advance of the event.
