On Wednesday, June 27th, InterPlay Atlanta's Soulprint Players partnered with the Early Edgewood-Candler Park Biracial History Project to lead the community in a ritual honoring and remembrance of the thriving black community that once lived in Candler Park. Soulprint Players shared the timeline illuminating the systematic edging out of the black community.
What to Expect:
The performance was followed by a community discussion about the effects of gentrification and how we can advocate for affordable housing and equitable communites in the present.
