Northwest Miami’s Liberty City and Overtown areas have a longand rich history.
Today, this vibrant corner of Greater Miamidisplays its cultural and civic pride with colorful murals of African-Americanheroes, and its annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade and the historic Lyric Theater. The Lyric Theater was the anchor of the area once known as “Little Broadway” and hosted performances by such big names as Count Basie, Patti LaBelle and Aretha Franklin. The Lyric Theater thrived between 1913 andthe 1960s but the facility went through a lull after that. Today, the LyricTheater is reopened, renovated and working to reclaim its former glory.
The neighborhood is also home to local’s favorites like the beloved People’s Bar-B-Que, non-profit music projects, arts festivals, farmers markets and more.
