Thanks for the article about the Diversity Engagement Coalition [“Hidden in Plain View,” April 30, Xpress]. However, I’d like to point out that the photographs used as the base of the cover art — credited to Just Folks, Asheville Design Center and Molly Must —are actually from the Andrea Clark Collection housed at Pack Memorial Library. These amazing photographs of the East End neighborhood were taken by Asheville resident Andrea Clark around 1968–70, prior to implementation of the East End/Valley Community Improvement Project in 1979 as part of Asheville’s urban renewal program.
Some of the photographs were published in a 2009 book (see http://avl.mx/09w) and again as part of the N.C. Humanities Council’s Twilight of a Neighborhood project (see http://avl.mx/09x). Many are available as part of the Buncombe County Flickr feed: http://avl.mx/09y.
Just want to make sure that Andrea is credited with these photographs.
