The Ups and Downs of the Development Vision of Greenville through the Years

Forum 1 in a 2 Part Series Focusing on Development, Gentrification, and Growing Together

Bruce Norris’ Pulitzer Prize winning play Clybourne Park looks at the changing dynamics of a fictional neighborhood in Chicago’s southside through the lens of one house. By placing the turmoil incited by White owners selling the house to a Black family in 1959 alongside the conflict created by a White family purchasing it in 2009, the play poses challenging questions about what constitutes progress in changing communities. Does the transformation of Greenville over the past 30 years offer any way forward to cities across the country faced with similar questions? Join us for conversation with Merl Code, an essential member of Greenville’s development vision braintrust, as we look back at how far Greenville has come and the road that brought us here.

Moderated by Jonathan Parker, Director of City Involvement from Fellowship Greenville.
