Abstract

The Center Street neighborhood was once a thriving section of Des Moines in which African Americans played important roles. It has changed dramatically since the middle of the 20th century. Using documents, artifacts, and information gathered from interviews of Center Street residents, this project reconstructs the physical and social contexts of the neighborhood in contrast to its current condition.
