Neighborhood Stories

We have begun to feature stories from around the Northside neighborhood using interviews from our “Facing Our Neighbors” initiative and the extensive local history collection of the Southern Oral History Program. Visit our Jackson Center Histories page to view these collections. Our next project is “Histories of Homes,” which will specifically attend to the histories of the homes and neighborhoods that make up Northside/Pine Knolls and the challenge for African American and lower income residents to continue to live and thrive in them. If you are interested taking part in this initiative, please contact us!
