Clayborn Temple, at the corner of Hernando and Pontotoc, is on
the National Register of Historic Places. It was here that the
1968 "I Am A Man" sanitation workers march began. After being
vacant from 1999-2015 it now has a new congregation, and efforts
are underway to again make it an integral part of the community.
