The past, present, and future of African-Americans in Asheville is a story of resilience. Join DeWayne Barton and Hood Huggers International for a Garden Gathering in the Peace Gardens & Market in West Asheville. Hood Huggers builds greater communication, connection and wealth in systematically marginalized neighborhoods in the Affrilachian region through the arts, environment, and social enterprise. The Peace Gardens & Market--a labor of love in the heart of the Burton Street Community--is a sanctuary for positive action, designed to create neighborhood food security, community cohesion, and a vibrant, sustainable local economy. The Gardens are also a vibrant sculpture park, featuring installations created by DeWayne Barton and other artists, telling a compelling story of social and environmental justice and black history. The Gardens will be activated with food, drink, art, music, poetry and performance.
