The on-going development of the Mace’s Lane Community Center and the Edythe M. Jolley Museum and Cultural Center is the result of the unflinching determination of its Steering Committee, largely comprised of Mace’s Lane High School (MLHS) alumni. With little or no experience in large development projects, the Committee secured ownership of the large abandoned high school, obtained funding for the building’s renovation, and established a relationship with the Boys and Girls Club of America to oversee youth programming. The group’s ultimate goal is to transform the former segregated Black high school into a community center and mount the new Edythe M. Jolley Museum. We provided a brief case statement, largely derived from an Interpretive Plan we had developed for the group.
