Preserving the Bruce Street School

The historic Bruce Street School ruins, the remnants of DeKalb County’s first public school for Black students, are undergoing a major renovation that will protect this important site for future generations. The rehabilitation will remove debris from the ruins and open up the space for community activities. What do you want the ruins to look like when they have been preserved, and how would you like the community to use the space? Check out the presentation where Arabia Alliance staff present the history and possibilities of the Bruce Street School ruins below:
