The nodal points for Little Africa in all three areas are classified as “opportunity clusters” in racially concentrated areas of poverty (RCAP) in the metro area by the Metropolitan Council. In the Saint Paul and Minneapolis nodes they represent high access to jobs and services with low performing schools and poor social and environmental living conditions. The Brooklyn Boulevard area is characterized as having moderate access to jobs and services and moderate performing schools and environments. The aim of this project is to provide an avenue for African immigrants to work collaboratively to achieve a higher standard of living and business and economic development.
