Liberty City in Northwest Miami has a long and rich history – and this historically Black community is on the verge of economic revival.



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 1950s and early 1960s as a result of the Black displacement caused by the expressway construction that devastated Historic Overtown.

Liberty City was the childhood home of director Barry Jenkins, whose 2017 film “Moonlight,” set here, won Best Picture at the Academy Awards.
