The Third Dorr Street … Live Overcomes the Foul Weather


The skies started clearing at noon on Saturday, August 25, permitting the third annual “Dorr Street … Live” community festival to open and to welcome vendors and guests to the event at the corner of Dorr and Collingwood.


The festival, sponsored by the African American Legacy Project, and President Robert Smith, is a free public event with the goal of rekindling the spirit of the community with food, fun, exceptional entertainment and much more.


This year’s festival included a special tribute to the late John Moore, one of the founding board members of the African American Legacy Project. Moore, who passed away on June 20 of this year – banker, college administrator, entrepreneur, author – spent his early years as a resident of the Brand Whitlock Homes, and overcame that period of poverty to become one of the Toledo area’s leading citizens. His daughter, Audrey Madyun, accepted commemorative plaques presented by Toledo City Councilwoman Cecelia Adams, PhD, and Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority President Demetria Simpson.
