The Jackson Center's motto is "without the past, you have no future" This presentation will cover a brief history of Northside, one of the historically Black neighborhoods of Chapel Hill, in its formation & foundation, and its ongoing struggle for civil rights through the last several decades of rapid transition. They will touch on the coalition efforts led by neighbors to address the rapidly rising student housing market, ending with an interactive discussion about current collaborative efforts to preserve the future of one of Chapel Hill's most diverse and historic neighborhoods.
