Knox St. Studios (formerly titled AB Studios) is developing this project and has a proven track record of driving impact across the Triangle. From working with American Underground to achieve its Diversity and Inclusion objectives around founder representation and cofounding Black Wall Street: Homecoming’s annual convening of national business leaders, to serving as the strategist behind and executive director of the Innovation & Entrepreneurship Center in Raleigh, our team embodies community-based leadership and innovation. This project means a lot to the Point AB Team, as our Director, Talib Graves-Manns has familiar ties to Walltown – his Great-Great-Great Grandfather is George Wall, the namesake of the community!
