Asheville’s Southside community, a historic and seldom celebrated black neighborhood, is responding to high levels of gentrification and poverty by rising for a new future that ensures everyone has a healthy place to live, learn, work, worship and play.

Southside Rising For Justice will be a family-friendly community celebration including live music in the garden pavilion featuring performances by local artist Lyric and many others. There will be a supervised activity area for kids with crafts, games, and plenty of space to play. A community marketplace will feature food and goods from local vendors plus interactive arts activities and representatives from community organizations. In addition, a special performance by the No Kapp Dance Team will be followed by a creative strategy session to ensure everyone has a healthy place to live, learn, work, worship and play.
