Residents voice on opinions on Lemon City vs. Little Haiti

Residents of Liberty City and surrounding areas have flooded The Miami Times with telephone calls that expressed their concerns about the possibility of there being a name change for Lemon City. As one caller said, “to do so would push aside the fact that the people who lived, slaved and died in that area and let them be forgotten and dismissed,” stated Courtney Demerritte, the great-grandson of Elizabeth and Rodney Ferguson who lived in Lemon City in the 30s and 40s.
