Into the ROC: Tour & Dine: RIT's Relationship to the Black & Latino Communities
Join us for a walking tour of the former Third Ward led by elders who grew up in the neighborhood and youth who are living with the loss of this thriving African-American community to consequences of redlining and urban renewal. Clarissa St. was to Rochester what Greenwood was to Tulsa, Oklahoma. For context see: ClarissaUprooted.org
Following, we will dine at Carmen's Cooking to sample many Puerto Rican style foods. We will converse with the owner and RIT alums about their experience living in Rochester.
The bus will leave from the Sentinel Statue promptly at 1:30pm.
Partnered with the Division of Diversity & Inclusion.
