Comet Calendar

Dallas’s past is one of contradictions, of progress and development alongside suppression and destruction. From emancipation through the Civil Rights Movement, Black Dallasites strove to build thriving lives despite Jim Crow restrictions. Seeking to capitalize on economic growth, the city and developers decimated these same Black communities, eventually displacing residents and wiping neighborhoods from the map.

Yet their history remains. Explore it in "History Resides Here: How Jim Crow and Urban Development Shaped a House, Neighborhood, and City," a temporary exhibit at Old City Park curated by UTD History graduate students and located in one of the few houses rescued from the bulldozers that tore apart the neighborhood of North Dallas.
