Legends like Ella Fitzgerald played at the Hippodrome Theater. Maggie Walker who was the first female bank president chartered a bank called , 'The St Luke Penny Saving Bank'. The bank was located in the Jackson Ward neighborhood. Jackson Ward was home to many black owned businesses like barbershops, grocery stores, and a insurance company called Southern Aid The Construction of Interstate I-95 destroyed a lot of the neighborhood and but it did not destroy the spirit of the neighborhood.
