With environmental graphics designed by Flint-native artist and Columbia College Chicago graduate Melisa Morgan and with the help of College for Creative Studies graduate Jasmin Allen, the North Side Correspondence School art parades place a poetic vocabulary inspired by Martin Luther King’s leadership and community meetings onto houses and commercial buildings along the two routes.

Participants create lists, notes, and postcards and post them onto vacant spaces, led by the Nightfire Drumline, meeting at Bunche School in Max Branden Park for a neighborhood-wide celebration. Featuring DJ Gardell Haralson leading line dancing inside a heated tent.
