About the Event
This living exhibit was developed in collaboration with former residents of The Bottom. It offers a tour via KAT Trolley of their neighborhood, anchored by signs of the “streets and feets” they remember. The exhibit will tour the original Bottom with these elders, whose “feets” traversed the “streets” of the neighborhood decades ago. Participants will listen to their stories, imagine their kinship and affirm their existence.
