2. Bunch-Lyons, Beverly. "The Business of Black Death in a Southern City: African American Funeral Homes in Raleigh, NC" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the 95th Annual Convention, Raleigh Convention Center, Raleigh, North Carolina, Sep 29, 2010 <Not Available>. 2020-02-22 <>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: Death is a certainty for all who live. Operating a well-managed funeral home offered a level of economic security not found in many other business ventures engaged in by African Americans at the beginning of the twentieth century. In Raleigh, North Carolina, the first African American owned funeral home began operation in 1908. The goal was to serve the needs of Raleigh’s growing black population and provide the level of respectability and equity that black patrons desired.

In the South at the turn of the twentieth century, Jim Crow laws followed blacks from the cradle to the grave. Black families experiencing the death of a loved one were often left further devastated by the substandard conditions under which their loved one was laid to rest by white funeral home operators.

This paper is an examination of the emergence of African American owned and operated funeral homes in Raleigh, North Carolina from 1900-1980. Using oral history interviews, census records, papers from the State Burial Commissioner, as well as other primary and secondary sources; this paper explores the social, economic, and political conditions that created an environment which fostered the need for businesses such as funeral homes, which catered to black patrons.

3. Kurs, Emma. "Justice Reinvestment in Mecklenburg County, NC: Innovative Approaches for Addressing Justice System Drivers" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Criminology – 71st Annual Meeting, Washington Hilton, Washington, DC, <Not Available>. 2020-02-22 <>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: This presentation will summarize findings from Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, one of 17 local jurisdictions engaged in the Justice Reinvestment Initiative, a data-driven approach to criminal justice systems reform. Beginning in April 2011, Mecklenburg County received technical assistance from the Center for Effective Public Policy and Applied Research Services to conduct in-depth data analysis and identify the population and cost drivers of its county criminal justice population. Through this analysis, Mecklenburg County identified several main drivers: low-level offenders (e.g., driving with a revoked license), the homeless and mentally ill population, recidivists, and those arrested on citizen-initiated warrants. Mecklenburg County implemented a range of innovative solutions to address these drivers, including a driver’s license restoration clinic, Crisis Intervention Team training, and a citizen-initiated complaint docket. This presentation will spotlight Mecklenburg County’s approach to justice reinvestment, initial performance measures related to the adopted strategies, and lessons learned for future criminal justice systems change initiatives.

4. Tynan, Jacqueline. and Clark, Laura. "The Rebirth of a Community: Leading a Holistic Revitalization in Charlotte, NC" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Biennial Conference of the Society for Community Research and Action, University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, <Not Available>. 2020-02-22 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: In 1995, citizens of Atlanta, GA worked together to revitalize a neighborhood that had a high concentration of poverty, crime, poor academic achievement, and low educational attainment. The neighborhood in Atlanta – East Lake – was redeveloped into a mixed-income community and is now home to one of the most successful schools in GA. In 2009, Purpose Built Communities was created to help replicate this model in other communities.

Around the same time Purpose Built Communities was created, a North Carolina native, community activist, and nonprofit board chair in Charlotte visited East Lake and Harlem Children’s Zone in hopes of replicating those place-based models in Charlotte, NC. After two years of rallying key stakeholders in Charlotte, the Charlotte Housing Authority was awarded a $20.9 million Hope VI grant to revitalize one of its most vulnerable communities.

Presenters will discuss the path taken to develop the backbone organization, Renaissance West Community Initiative (RWCI), to lead the holistic revitalization efforts in the community and the work RWCI has since accomplished. RWCI is now a network member of Purpose Built Communities and works closely with staff in Atlanta to replicate the success of East Lake. Presenters will provide an overview of the Purpose Built Communities model and describe the cradle-to-career education continuum, supportive services, and ongoing programs now available in the community RWCI serves.

Presenters will facilitate discussion about the key community psychology components involved in such an initiative and will further describe successes and setbacks in implementation.
