The East Bay Permanent Real Estate Cooperative, a community real estate developer that supports BIPOC communities' access to land and housing, is leading the reactivation of a historic Black arts & business corridor in West Oakland centered around Esther’s Orbit Room, a legendary former blues and jazz club. The Esther's Orbit Room Cultural Revival Project, a multistage, community designed cultural arts center, with a goal of creating a space for the Black arts community for generations to come, will bring to the 7th street corridor a fine arts and movement arts gallery, 3 units of cooperative artist housing, a juice bar & a café, outdoor festival space, a community stage, and a weekly Black farmer’s market. The Racial Justice Collaborative’s $50,000 grant contributes to getting the project off the ground.
