$19
per month
The black community in Gastonia, NC has a story to tell. The Highland community is home to authors, artists, basketball stars, and ordinary people like me. We've seen the same economic forces and systemic racism that have faced many communities, but there's only one Highland, rising to face the challenges and be a strong community.
