BENTON HARBOR — When Lou Harvey moved to Benton Harbor 55 years ago, Black people didn’t live on Colfax Avenue.

“Most of the Black people at that time stayed on Miller Street and on Townline, and they were always in two groups. No one was spread out all over town like it is now. Colfax – no way,” he said Sunday.
