Repost from @miamidadedems using @RepostRegramApp - #repost @keonhardemon In the early 1900s, Colored Town, now known as Overtown, was a thriving cultural and arts scene. Colored Town hosted many entertainers and they would often perform at venues such as the Lyric Theatre and Harlem Square Club. Colored Town was also home to Miami’s thriving black businesses which is why it was nicknamed Miami’s Black Wallstreet. All of this came to an end when the construction of I-95, and the railroad, ripped through the heart of Colored Town dismantling the thriving neighborhood and displacing its residents. Businesses were forced to close and Colored Town fell into deep poverty. #AMomentinHistory #MiamiHistory #D5Today #BlackHistory #BlackExcellence #D5BHM #BlackHistoryMonth #BHM #BlackHistoryFacts #BlackHistory101 #BlackMiami #FortheCulture #overtown #magicity 💫
