For decades, Nieeta Presley has been building community and making change. As the Executive Director of Aurora/St. Anthony Neighborhood Development Corporation (ASANDC) in St. Paul, Minnesota. She has led numerous programs aimed at empowering people throughout the African American community.
Now, on the eve of her retirement, she spoke with host Kimberly Miller about her organization’s accomplishments: most notably the completion of a multi-unit apartment and commercial building that helped transform the corner of Dale and University Avenues. Her story is one of action, neighborhood empowerment and entrepreneurship. It’s one that all activists and anyone dreaming of a better future can learn from.
