Unity Project

Unity Fist

The Unity Project is an innovative art collaboration with the community, the City of Boynton Beach, and artists to bring awareness to the 100 year period since the passage of three ordinances:

  1. City Ordinance 37, 1924 instituting segregation
  2. City Ordinance 47, 1924 widening the segregated area
  3. City Ordinance 136, 1933 establishing sundowner law

Through the creative arts and community dialogue, the project highlights the Heart of Boynton's often overlooked history. The Unity Project is facilitated through physical enhancements of public art, historic markers, and murals that honor individuals, places and events from the passage of the ordinance in 1924 through the present. This project acknowledges our shared collective past and aims to pave a brighter future.
