In partnership with visual artist Chat Travieso and playwright  Tarell Alvin McCraney (Moonlight), Arts for Learning will facilitate a youth-led reimagining and planning program that takes as its starting point the historic remains of a segregation wall that still exists in Miami, FL’s Liberty City neighborhood. Many residents  are not aware of its history despite the fact that they have lived  with it in their community for decades.

The original race wall was built in 1937 to appease white neighbors by segregating the new Liberty Square housing development for black residents.
