Mission & Vision

Our vision is Beloved Community. We see a world of creative reconciliation, hard-won rights, and abiding love and respect of which we may be a means.

Our mission is to honor, renew, and build community in the historic Northside and Pine Knolls  neighborhoods of  Chapel Hill, NC.

 We aim to do justice by the legacies of vision, value, action, and example we hold in the Jackson Center Oral History Trust.


Our goal is

             to engage

                        the wisdom of youth voices

                        the power of civil rights history

                        the struggles and strengths of generations of long-term residents

                        the insight of all who work, live, play, serve, and worship in                                                      Northside neighborhoods

                        and partnership across multiple lines of difference

            to make community-driven change.
