The Marian Cheek Jackson Center
In Loving Memory of Reverend Troy Harrison
Honoring Mrs. Marian Cheek Jackson
A Historic Welcome to Northside
The Northside Festival | April 29, 2017
Northside: A Rare and Abundant Community
We honor, renew, and build community in the historic Northside and Pine Knolls neighborhoods of Chapel Hill, NC
On May 2nd, we lost a great, prophetic leader, dear brother and friend, and visionary partner in the foundation and sustenance of the Jackson Center. Read of Reverend Harrison's selfless legacy and listen to selected clips from various sermons, speeches, and songs that he produced.
The first Northside Gateway is nearly complete! At the corner of W. Rosemary and Roberson, this gateway will honor our community’s Freedom Fighters.
As we grieve and honor the loss of our treasured namesake, Mrs. Marian Cheek Jackson, her words could not be truer: without the past, you have no future. Read of her legacy and history that has inspired and sustained our work.
Formerly known as May Day, the Northside Festival is a time of renewal. It is a chance for all to revel in the abundance of Northside community and to rededicate ourselves to preserving its future. We look forward to seeing you there!
