Orange Mound is of massive historic importance: it’s the first neighborhood in the United States built for and by Black people. That’s why Orange Mound Tower is being built for and by Black creatives and the residents of this storied neighborhood.
On January 11th, 2019, black creatives in Memphis came together to recognize the beginning of a new era in Memphis. An era where black creatives have space to flourish and own their own stories. Check out the video below that captured this historic moment.
As this project evolves, we’re looking to engage members of the Orange Mound Community and those who can benefit from this space. To get connected and stay up-to-date on our progress, let us know how you’d like to be involved.
