Black Bottom Conversation

Please listen to this YouTube recording of a sacred conversation held in January, 2022.  It is an opportunity for our congregation to understand a series of signficant events in the history of West Philadelphia.  Our guests, Dr. Walter Palmer and Gerald (Sid) Bolling, help us to understand the impacts of the racial divide in our area of the city.  The Black Bottom, a self-sustaining African-American community, was a thriving community that was dismatled by "urban renewal." Recent developments have put affordable housing in our neighborhood in jeopardy.  

Explore the resources collected by Dr. Palmer on the Black Bottom website.
