Black Redlands 1910: Making a Vibrant Community Visible
Every time I’d go to a real estate office, they’d send me back across the bridge….That was my first feeling that there was something wrong in this community. This beautiful valley that I’d seen, something was wrong. Then I noticed that all of the Black people lived on the other side of the freeway.
The Valley Truck Farms was a predominantly Black community tucked into the Southeastern side of San Bernardino that grew from the 1930s to the 1970s. It was vibrant and full of life for almost a century. Now it is mostly gone.
