Currently, the YMI Cultural Center is home to multiple exhibits featuring: African-American tribal masks, drawings of African-American artist Charles W. White, and multiple local/regional historical displays. The organization has also broadened its scope to include a more multicultural and multiethnic spectrum of events
Mt. Zion is a religious institution founded in 1880 with their formal gathering hall built in the heart of the black commercial district in 1919. The church has funded, under new pastorship, a large non-profit organization intent on revitalizing The Block as a place of cultural, spiritual, and industrial/economic growth both for and about local African Americans. The inclusion thereof in The Block sculpture is in respect and veneration not only of the financial contribution the church has made towards revitalizing The Block area of town but also for the importance of the congregation and its long history in the community.
