The Rondo Land Bridge Block Party is already underway!  It’s this evening, Friday, June 9, 3-7 p.m.  Sponsored by ReConnect Rondo, the party is warming up at the Rondo Commemorative Plaza at the intersection of Concordia Avenue and Fisk Street.(

This is a grand community celebration of the “land bridge” that will have a profound and long-lasting effect on this his unique neighborhood.  Learn more about hopes and aspirations for the proposed land bridge – and much more about other community development results and plans here:

The Rondo community had a profound impact on me when I was a teen struggling to understand conflict and injustice in the world around me. ( Long ago I felt the in a visceral way the suffering endured by people devastated by what was happening to Rondo;  today I share great hope for a neighborhood that resisted, that spoke truth power, and that is collaborating to create a 21st century neighborhood that builds on a proud history.

This is a beautiful evening to celebrate a mighty triumph!    There’s live music, fabulous food, and bountiful hope and pride in a people who have had the spirit to take a long view!

RondoReconnect shares a powerful lesson much needed in these times!
