Shiloh’s Historic African American Community In Asheville
Hello friends, I hope you are doing well, and enjoying the last days of summer. Ok, today I want to share with you all, my visit to the Shiloh Community in South Asheville, the oldest African American Community in our City.
This place has a beautiful garden with flowers, vegetables,stone oven, murals, amphitheater, and it is cared for, and kept by local residents.The best part is they are re-writing their history, while empowering youth with a variety of activities and workshops, while investing time in the place they call home.
Thank you Mrs. Sophie Dixon, Norma S. Baynes, Leonard E. Jones for your time and Buncombe County for sponsoring this bilingual blog.
Special thanks to Chloë Moore, Shaniqua Simuel, and Lydia George, managers of Shiloh Community Garden, for sharing their love and passion for building a better world.
