?Harvey Boyd's current "mission" is preserving the land and the community of Crestdale, located southeast of Charlotte, in Matthews. Born in 1944, to Viola and Sam Boyd, Harvey described Crestdale as "a unique community in the U.S. One of the oldest African American communities founded right after the Civil War." Sitting on 135 acres of land in the center of Matthews, it is still owned by ancestors of the original families.
