VIDEO MIX TV – The Urban Ground Breaking Recap

While many historically black communities have become footnotes because of targeted gentrification, Urban Philanthropies is turning the tides with plans to continue the revitalization of Miami’s Overtown community.

Located in the heart of Overtown, the new on trend entertainment hub, “The Urban,” will house a space infused with art, music, culture, a food market and special events. The hub will provide a space for neighbors to connect, friends to meet new friends and visitors to take in the culture.

Urban Philanthropies focuses on preserving, empowering and transforming disinvested communities like Overtown.

The Urban will create over 100 jobs in the retail, restaurant areas. Additionally, there will be a 20k square foot food forest that will be the home to an incredible garden where people will be able to learn to grow food as well as participate in the cultivation and harvesting.
