LIBERTY CITY: CELEBRATING
CULTURAL HISTORY

THIS HISTORICALLY BLACK AREA IS ON THE VERGE OF ECONOMIC REVIVAL.


Northwest Miami's Liberty City area has a long and rich history.


The first large migration of Blacks to Liberty City began in 1937 when many families moved to the Liberty Square Housing Project, the second Federal housing project built in the U.S. The second major migration came in the late 1950's and early 1960's as a result of the Black displacement caused by the expressway construction that devastated Overtown.


Today, Liberty City, which was the site of the 1980 riots, is on the verge of economic revival. It also hosts an annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade.
