Do more listening.
Heroes of Buford Highway, We Love BuHi’s oral history project, gives agency to people with deep connections to the area who may not have had a chance to share their stories yet.
This quote continues the story of one of our Heroes. She and her family were one of the first Japanese-Americans to move to Doraville, arriving in the Northwoods neighborhood in 1960.
If you or someone you know would like to share your Buford Highway stories with us, or would like to participate as a Listener (a minimum commitment of a year is required), please contact us at email@example.com.
The Buford Highway Shuffle was created to serve the Buford Highway community with empowering local immigrant-owned businesses to have their businesses truly be seen as community assets. 📍Sweet Hut Bakery & Cafe has established itself as a powerful asset that keeps growing. While growing, Sweet Hut doesn't lose sight of working hard to create each treat with care and celebrating a myriad of ingredients such as pandan leaves, taro, matcha among others. Join in on celebrating all these businesses along the Buford Highway by signing-up to play (link in bio)
The City of Brookhaven tonight considers a six month zoning moratorium on development along Buford Highway.
The purpose of the moratorium is the temporary preservation of the status quo as it relates to the built environment and existing land uses. Before we move too much further toward the final recommendations of the zoning rewrite, we ask all of you to help us define what success means, and for whom.
We believe success to be the preservation of what truly makes Buford Highway, Buford Highway - its people.
In response to every immigrant’s declaration that they are #heretostay, we say yes, y'all belong here. #yallbelonghere
Early this year, We Love BuHi officially launched Heroes of Buford Highway, our oral history project to gather the stories of the people who have made Buford Highway what it is. Who have made Atlanta who we are.
By listening closely to the people who have broadened and deepened who Atlanta is, we seek a greater understanding of how this community came to be. We believe that knowing the details of how we got here will lead us to a shared vision for where we want to go, a common purpose about who we want to be.
Thanks to all of you, especially our brave Heroes, for allowing us to join with you, to look back, to look deep within, to listen, to understand, and to love.
