Walk historic Jefferson Street Corridor from 16th Street to Seventh Street in downtown Phoenix. Known as the "Black Corridor," this one-mile stretch was and still is considered the heartbeat or epicenter of African American cultural life. As we walk this historical and cultural trail, we will acknowledge and pay homage to the educational, religious, political, social and cultural sites of key structures, buildings and places that paralleled key moments in the history of black Phoenicians and part of the national tapestry of civil rights history. In collaboration with Indigo Cultural Center, we will be honoring artist Earl Cooke who has been an active member of this neighborhood and contributor to the arts in Phoenix for many years. Check-in begins at 8:30 a.m. the morning of the event.
