Collier Heights Celebrates Local Historic Designation

On February 22, 2014 The Collier Heights Community Association will host a Gala celebrating obtaining local historic designation.

The gala will include a “Museum” room which will feature not only archives from the citizens of Collier Heights but also my portraits and images that tell the story of a neighborhood of single family homes and their owners in northwest Atlanta, Georgia that was developed, financed, designed and constructed in the 1950’s and 1960’s predominantly by and for Black Americans.  Through the later half of the 20th century, this neighborhood acted as a safe environment for children to gain an education, be active in the neighborhood, and take action in the civil rights movement. And as such has built and utilized social capital to change the fabric of America.
