The walk will take place on Oretha Castle Haley Blvd., between Erato St. and Philip St. We will have a walking discussion about the evolution of the corridor from German immigration to the Civil Rights movement to Hurricane Katrina and beyond. The event will highlight recent revitalization successes and how they respect the rich history, which has molded this cultural corridor.
