Event Image
In the background, a group of students stands attentively listening to a community member. In front of them on a table is a tray of food with decorative toothpicks sticking out. To the left of the image on a purple background is the information about the event. Along the bottom of the image are the logos of sponsoring groups. In the bottom right of the image, on a green background, is a note to register on Campus Groups.

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:
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.
