In 2023, the Historic Stumptown Neighborhood Association (HSNA) will be meeting regularly. This group is comprised of current and former residents of Stumptown and focuses on its Black history and advising their representatives on the Reparations Commission. In February, we watched the latest episodes of the “Montford & Stumptown Stories” video docuseries. As part of the collaboration with Reparations Commission, Buncombe County, City of Asheville, STM Multimedia, and Artéria Collective, Nyles – a member of the reparations youth documentation team – took the photos below of members of the group enjoying the videos. The photo above of the May meeting is by Mike Belleme.

For information about upcoming meetings, call Rasheeda Hall at 828-772-4528.
