Sharp End was once the cultural heart of Columbia, Missouri’s black community. Over the last year, the Sharp End Heritage Committee has made an effort to immortalize the area that once existed between Fifth and Sixth Streets on Walnut. In May of this past year, the City put up a plaque on Walnut Street memorializing the area.
