Pedestrians and vehicles passing Heart and Hope Place, at the intersection of Port Washington and MLK Drive, are greeted by colorful, powerful paintings by Milwaukee artist Reggie Baylor. The housing development and the artwork have brought new life to the street since their completion last year.
In the 1970s and ’80s, Harambee (which means “all pull together” in Swahili) once had more than 100 active block clubs. Today, the neighborhood has seen a rise in investment, clearly evidenced on a drive through the historic renovation and new development on Martin Luther King Drive.
