Map: Black Bottom Digital Archive

What and where are Black Bottom?

The Black Bottom Digital Archive is an outgrowth of Black Bottom Archives and the Black Bottom Street View projects. The most critical and essential element of the digital archive is its collection of oral histories from Black Bottom. A photograph archive was made to document the area before it was razed in favor of new housing developments (notably Lafayette Park), but few stories remain.

Black Bottom Archives is preserving those stories and mapping out historical sites.
