On May 29th and 30th, the board, staff, and partners of the Arabia Mountain Heritage Area Alliance will host a booth at the New Black Wall Street Market’s Outdoor Market Festival, located at 8109 Mall Parkway, Stonecrest, GA 30038. The festival will be open from 10 am until 7 pm on both days. Alongside business and food vendors, the Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area booth will showcase the beautiful natural spaces and powerful history of the area in and around Stonecrest.
“We are very excited to be participating in the New Black Wall Street Market’s inaugural event,” said Revonda Cosby, Executive Director of the Arabia Mountain Heritage Area Alliance. “Increasing access to the National Heritage Area for diverse people from all backgrounds is a major goal of the Arabia Alliance, and I look forward to spreading the word and introducing people to the natural and historic resources right in Atlanta’s backyard.”
The festival takes place 100 years after the burning of Black Wall Street, a prosperous Black community in Tulsa, OK, destroyed by a white mob in 1921. The New Black Wall Street Market event will commemorate the 1921 tragedy while celebrating local Black businesses, performers, and more.
