Black Bottom Memorial Mosaic

A mosaic displaying a bulldozer approaching a row of houses filled with African American residents.

A memorial for the Black Bottom neighborhood—removed for the construction of the University City Science Center in University Redevelopment Unit 3—was displayed on a wall of the University City High School until the school was demolished in 2015.
