It is a journey that begins with the vibrant music scene of the ’60s and the activism of the ’70s, then continues into the rapid process of gentrification, continued activism and arts of the ’80s and hip-hop in the ’90s.
The journey ends with the continued effort to preserve Black arts spaces and build new ones because there is room for so many more. It is an effort listeners are invited to join.
