The Marian Cheek Jackson Center is a hub of creative action dedicated to preserving the future of historically Black neighborhoods in Chapel Hill and Carrboro. In this presentation, we will discuss one of the Jackson Center’s latest projects, which seeks to develop a respite program for aging neighbors and their care partners in honor of the late Ms. Velma Perry. As this project is in its early stages, we will discuss the potential of this project and the future of elder care in the historically Black neighborhoods of Chapel Hill and Carrboro.
