Brownsville is home to the Historic Hampton House and was a bustling community during the Green Book era. The community is known for its historians like Dr. Enid Pinkney and its impact on the civil rights movement as a gathering place for leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, and Muhammad Ali. The Dade Heritage Trust in the community is now a staple committed to preserving Black Miami’s historic places. The fight to keep Brownsville from being annexed into the city of Hialeah and to maintain its integrity has been upheld by local activists, and the mayor has halted plans to divide this community.
