"'Some people have talked about the cost involved in the restoration and modernization of that unit. But I never heard anybody speak about that when they were doing the Darwin Martin House,' [Taylor] said. 'I’ve never heard anybody say 30-million dollars is a lot to pour into a house nobody is going to live in.'” https://news.wbfo.org/post/black-history-housing-complex-risk-demolition

The Futures Garden recently received some great recognition from Buffalo Rising! The Futures Garden is a byproduct of our Community as Classroom program in P.S. 37 (Futures Academy).

The University at Buffalo Center for Urban Studies East Side History Project
Henry Louis Taylor, Jr., Ph.D.
The East Side History Project is a joint partnership amongst the University at Buffalo Center for Urban Studies, the Buffalo State College Archives & Special Collections Department, and the Monroe Fordham Regional History Center to document the history of African-American people living in the East Side of Buffalo. The planners and archivists have been working to gather primary and secondary source material that documents the life of Black Buffalo. The final project will be the creation of a digital platform that makes the historical documents readily available and accessible to researchers, urban planners, educators, students, community activists, and the general public.
The History Project conceptualizes history as a dynamic continuum that consists of the past, the present, and the uncreated future. In this paradigm, knowledge of the past informs our understanding of the present, which then shapes our ideas for the desirable future. These ideas and insights allow for the imagining of a very different yet possible world. Such a new world will be more racially, socially, and economically inclusive and just than the current world.
A singular goal of the East Side History Project is to give urban planners an in-depth understanding of Black life in Buffalo that then allows them to re-create Black Buffalo history. The planners can use these documents to specifically gain insight into Black spatiality, placemaking, institution involvement, and community- building activities. Also, the history project sources will provide planners with insight into the ways that predatory City-building activities disrupted these neighborhoods (residentially and economically) and spawned the underdevelopment of Black Buffalo neighborhoods. Such ideas will then lay the foundation for building future communities based on the strengths of these early Black spatial formations, and to avoid damages and dangers that are created by predatory city building.
