Project Summary The Martin Luther King Drive Our mission is to bring back pride and prosperity to the streets named after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The non-profit organization Beloved Streets of America is implementing a comprehensive plan to reverse the urban decline and decay of the communities surrounding the streets named after Dr. King and provide a positive environment for growth. We will achieve our mission through a carefully planned process of revitalizing the residential and commercial areas along Dr. Martin Luther King Drive and creating a center for culture and entertainment. This will be accomplished through a series of repairs and improvements that are focused around providing immediate results of renewing existing assets that not being utilized and providing services that are needed. The work will be done utilizing skills from within the community to create opportunities for advancement for the residents through the renovation of the buildings, and new services being offered in the neighborhood that will both create jobs and improve the street on many levels. 4

Problem Statement In a 7 year nationwide study of MLK streets, the majority of these streets were found in impoverished cities, located in distressed neighborhoods, considered areas were blacks predominately live, they are considered unsafe, crime ridden places were whites and non-blacks seldom travel. These streets typically experience a lack of sustainable community economic development or cultural revitalization activities This initiative will bring dignity to these streets in line with the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the respect that his message deserves.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
