Fourth Avenue Business District

Fourth Avenue Business District

Birmingham

The neighborhood along Fourth Avenue from 15th to 18th Streets North developed as the city's black business district in the early part of the 1900s. Forced out by Jim Crow segregation and white-owned stores that did not welcome them as customers, African-American businessmen established their own retail, social and cultural center here. Black-owned banks, mortuaries, movie theaters and nightclubs flourished along the corridor through the 1960s. Some continue to this day.
