How A Black Woman Built Her Own Residential & Corporate Community From Scratch

As the old adage goes, “ain’t nothing to it but to do it.” While it can be easier said than done, Arkansas native Pam Brown Courtney made it happen.

After checking out a neighborhood in her hometown of Little Rock, that she was interested in, she realized that the members of the community weren’t necessarily interested in having her as a neighbor.

Instead of being discouraged, Pamela took matters into her own hands.

She decided that she would build her own community and welcome anyone who wanted to be there. Now that’s how you change the narrative.

Covenant Cove is a mix of both residential and corporate properties that can be rented. There are 51 rental homes within the community that can be customized any way residents want them. The houses feature 12-foot ceilings, architectural crown molding, hardwood, plush carpet or tile flooring, designer paint, Jacuzzi bathtubs, stand-alone showers, large walk-in closets, security system, professional landscaping, and sprinkler systems.

Yes, this Black woman set out to build a whole community in Little Rock, Arkansas. The same place where the Little Rock Nine happened among many other instances of racial segregation.
