Honoring Our Past, Creating Our Legacy says
Share your story of life on Alberta Street!

Alberta Main Street's Equitable Placemaking Historical Markers Outreach Project seeks to collect stories that document the history of the African American community on Alberta Street.

Stories will be included on the AMS website, and selected stories will inform the creation of historical and cultural markers to be installed on Alberta Street between NE 10th-31st Avenues.

If your story is selected to inform the creation of a marker, you will receive a $500 stipend to participate in the design process.

RSVP's appreciated: http://albertamainst.org/whats-happening/historical-markers-project/community-meeting-rsvp/

All stories are welcome. We are particularly interested in the following:

Stories from current or former King, Vernon, Sabin, or Concordia residents whose lives and familes have been impacted by social and economic changes in the area.

Stories about historically significant events on or impacting Alberta Street.

Stories that recollect a personally significant event or experience on Alberta Street.

All are welcome-- please join us! Diverse, community-wide participation is critical to our success.
