November 19, 2022 - March 2023. 

This traveling exhibition, produced in collaboration with the Grier Heights Community Center and Grier Heights community residents, highlights over 140 years of community history. It features pioneers like Sam Billings and Arthur S. Grier who laid the groundwork of a tight-knit farming community that became a bustling Black suburban neighborhood alongside stories of Black churches, schools, and traditions that became the cornerstones of life in Grier Heights. Listen to first-hand accounts of residents as they share memories of growing up in their community’s caring atmosphere and learn how this extended family of friends and neighbors are preserving their community for the next generations.  

 

On display at the Grier Heights Community Center:
