Photography by Vicky Pink - The Northern Third Ward Neighborhood Implementation Project celebrated the kickoff of their neighborhood revitalization project with a grand, community friendly event. Neighbor residents were invited to share their perspective and get involved in the five-year revitalization plan. Wells Fargo is supporting the effort with a $750,000 grant through its Neighborhood Grants Program that was presented to Change Happens. The project’s goal is to support resident-driven processes to achieve a healthy, diverse and sustainable community, based on resident-defined community needs. DJ Supastar and the Jack Yates Marching Motion Band provided entertainment. Some in attendance were Rev. Leslie Smith, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, Dr. Elwyn Lee, Carl Davis, Imarogbe Stokes, Algenita Scott Davis, Pastor Linda Davis, Ty Morrison, Blynthia Scott, Trinell Davis, Darryl Montgomery, Hughdell Young, Johannes Henderson, Rev. Preston Allen, Maia Shelby, Munirah Olabisi, and Gayle Waden.
