Coconut Grove


Coconut Grove is the earliest settlement in Miami-Dade as many Black Bahamians settlers came to build what is now known as the Peacock Inn. The community thrived in the mid-1880s and the early 1900s with Black-owned businesses and historic shotgun houses. After WWII, the community began to have an influx of veterans and other white settlers who then pushed out most of the community. Many legacy residents, historians, and activists are speaking out about this rich history and seeking to preserve the remnants of this fruitful community. Click here to watch episodes 2 and 3.
