Overtown was a thriving hub for Miami's Black community. Founded at the end of the nineteenth century, it is a former beacon of culture and economic prosperity that has been plagued by poverty in recent decades. Claire Oliver Gallery in Harlem aims to collaborate with Miami's cultural leaders, Overtown community stakeholders, and conscientious developers to provide a unique experience that complements the neighborhood's vibrant cultural heritage as the "Harlem of the South." The Southeast Overtown/Park West Community Redevelopment Agency and its director, James McQueen, make LOOP Overtown possible.
