City Of Miami Commissioners Moving Forward with Virginia Key Basin Projects, Plan For Homeless Families

Miami City Commissioners, in a sweeping four-fifths majority vote, established a contract for museum consultant services for the Historic Virginia Key Beach Park Museum with Lord Cultural Resources. The Civil Rights museum on Virginia Key Beach will not only embrace the creation of the county's only "colored people" beach back in 1945, but also would honor the history and the dedication of all workers of color who helped build Miami dating to some 50 years earlier.

Fallen Statues - A Conversation About Public Space and History

This is a recording of the first session of the Creative Communities Commons (CCC) series at the School of Cities.

Gail Lord has developed a concept for an “Aware-house,” not a ware house, but an Aware-house as a place to put memorials and other works that have been removed from public squares. It is neither shrine nor graveyard, but a site of truth, reconciliation, and collective recovery where activists, artists, curators, historians, political scientists, psychologists, sociologists, and the public can come together.
