What I have learned so Far

For someone who is not from Memphis and did not fully understand the history of Memphis, it has been a blast going to the Vance neighborhood and learning its history. It has been extremely pleasing to research the history of the two public housing units that are/were in the Vance neighborhood. Perhaps my favorite experience so far was when we watched the documentary film “From the River I Stand.” I really enjoyed being able to visualize Memphis’ history during the Civil Rights era.

I am extremely excited about starting the interviews with residents that are from the Vance neighborhood. I think it will amazing to hear the stories from residents of the Vance neighborhood and also hear about the hardships that were endured by those who got displaced from Cleaborn Homes.
