Overtown Music & Arts Festival (UPDATED)

“The Overtown Music & Arts Festival formerly named Overtown Rhythm & Arts Festival celebrated the rich history of one of Miami’s earliest settlements. The Festival took place in the heart of Overtown Business District, NW 3rd Avenue between 8th & 11th Streets for the 4th year on July 19, 2014 from 11am to 7pm with local art, food and entertainment.

Overtown is one of Miami’s earliest historically black communities. The area’s first settlers were black workmen who followed the FEC railroad south as it was extended from Palm Beach to Miami. The area we now know as Overtown was originally called Colored Town and was designated by Henry Flagler and Julia Tuttle as the location for black laborers and their families to live.”

So much history happened here, so here’s my tidbit of effort to keeping the cultural hope alive for years to come.
