A crowd gathered

in front of the new home of Bill and Daisy Myers,

the first black couple to move

into the all-white development of Levittown Pa.,

in 1957.

 

Samuel Snipes, the Myerses’ lawyer,

informed the police that they would be moving in,

knowing that controversy would follow.

North Carolina > Soul City

 

The self-contained,

racially integrated community

would be planned,

developed and managed

by black people.

 

Those black foundations

would be celebrated

in the town’s name: Soul City.

 

The idea was dreamed up

by Floyd McKissick:

attorney, civil rights activist

and force of nature.

 

In January 1969,

amid the waning days of US president

Lyndon B Johnson’s administration,

McKissick strolled

into a Washington DC news conference

with secretary of agriculture Orville Freeman

and announced plans to build Soul City

on 5,000 acres of rural land

in impoverished Warren County,

just over an hour’s drive

from Raleigh, North Carolina.
