More About Knoxville Re-Animation Coalition
The ‘Knoxville Re-Animation Coalition, Inc’ and the ‘Odd Fellows Scholars Program’ were developed in 2009 to build social capital in Walter P. Taylor Homes and surrounding areas by creating bridges between individuals in the community with the hope of strengthening social ties and collectiveness. These bridges include engaging the community in heritage construction, enhancing youth knowledge of African-American history in Knoxville, and equipping individuals with the writing, communication and technical skills needed to research and create alternative narratives that uplift the community while creating an overall sense of pride in their environment.
