Remembering the Past

This week, Scribe Video Center’s Precious Places Community History Project series remembers the past through three landmarks in as many neighborhoods.   This installment in the 14-part series airs on TV12 Sunday October 21st at 11:30pm. 

Unhushed! by The Still Standing Project.  Camden’s founding family, the Coopers, maintained a slave plantation.  This video pays tribute to those enslaved at Pomona Hall in the 18th century.     

Cliveden Park: Our Tree of Life by District Community Action Council.  A centuries old oak tree in Cliveden Park symbolizes neighborhood unity in Mt. Airy.  Residents demonstrate love and respect for their community through their upkeep of the park.

An Elder’s Story by Chester Consortium for Creative Community. Residents recall the gigantic electric sign that proclaimed “What Chester Makes Makes Chester,” as they remember the glory of a once-great industrial center.
