Early Edgewood-Candler Park was home to hundreds of African American residents from the 1870s to the 1980s.

In today's Candler Park, we are working together to reclaim the little-remembered African American history of the neighborhood. Centered in respect, fellowship and education, the History Project's community partners stand together with research, personal narratives, and cultural programs to bring this inclusive information into public awareness.
