West Marion Inc.

People on the Move for Old Fort is a newly formed Black-led community collaborative in Old Fort, NC. Although our community comprises over 30% of the population, we have been rendered invisible and excluded from decision-making spaces for generations. As one community member said, “Our souls are in the dirt here, but that is not reflected in the dominant historical narrative of the town.” The purpose of our work is to rebuild a sense of pride in our community, reclaim public spaces, and create more visibility of Black leadership in Old Fort.
