This chapter explores the stereotype-defying histories of Black and multi-ethnic placemaking in two historically significant Black neighborhoods: the Big Nine and Lincoln Park. East Ninth/Martin Luther King Street (““the Big Nine”“) is a corridor which for more than a century served as a premiere destination for African American commerce, social life, and artistic/creative production. Lincoln Park is one of the oldest and most historically significant Black neighborhoods in Chattanooga, described by many locals as Black community’s ““backyard”.

Keywords:   Commercial and economic development, Black or African American placemaking, Public space planning, Cultural development, Sports and recreation planning, Black business development history, Jewish history U.S. South, American blues history, Labor organizing
