Visions of Black-led Communities – Soul City
Soul City – Film Screening and Session discussion
Soul City is a planned community in North Carolina that was first proposed in 1969 by Floyd McKissick, a civil rights leader and director of the Congress of Racial Equality. Soul City was one of thirteen model city projects under the Urban Growth and New Community Development Act. The city was intended to be a community built and open to all races, but placed emphasis on providing opportunities for minorities and the poor.
This event includes a 30 min film screening of Soul City followed by a panel discussion.
