This article looks at civil rights activist Floyd B. McKissick and his efforts to establish Soul City in rural Warren County, North Carolina in 1973. Soul City was an interracial community and the first new town planned by a minority developer. Soul City's remoteness made it difficult to attract residents, business, and industry though and the town was foreclosed by the Department of Housing and Urban Development in 1979.
