King-Lincoln Culture Walk
Lessons in Black, Bronze and Blues
Whether you know it as the Blackberry Patch, Bronzeville or the Birthplace of Jazz in Columbus, the vibrancy of King-Lincoln is from the people who lived there. African-Americans of diverse cultural and educational backgrounds such as laborers, doctors and entrepreneurs all called this neighborhood home. By the 1920s, Long Street was the center of commercial, social and entertainment life with many black owned and operated businesses, including grocers, hotels, theaters, barber shops, beauty parlors, insurance companies, undertakers, confectioneries, dentists, and girls “frying fish in the windows of restaurants.” They were, in the words of the late Dr. Anna Bishop, “the nurseries of all Black progress in every field of endeavor.” The tour will begin at the historic Lincoln Theatre and end in time for the Soul Food Festival honoring the legacy of the late Eric Carmichael who helped create a vibrant King-Lincoln gateway.
