Bruce Street School Community Engagement Session
Feb 27, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Location: Vaughters Farmhouse Trailhead
Join us as we gather to shape the future of DeKalb County’s first Black public school, the Bruce Street School ruins. Efforts are underway to reactivate the site as a historic and community hub. Event participants will provide feedback and records that will impact how the Bruce Street School site is used in the future, as well as expanding the historic record of the school’s important past. This event is the third in a series designed to gather community feedback and direct the reactivation of the historic school site.
The event will take place at the offices of the Arabia Mountain Heritage Area Alliance, 3350 Klondike Road, Stonecrest, GA 30038. Free parking is available onsite and at the easily accessible trailhead next door (3366 Klondike Road).
This project is a collaboration between the City of Lithonia, DeKalb County, and the Arabia Mountain Heritage Area Alliance. Funding has been provided by DeKalb County District 5 Commissioner Mereda Davis Johnson.
