Rising on the Hill by Audenried Beacon Center. On the eve of the demolition of the Tasker Homes and the Audenried School, South Philadelphia students discuss their community, trying to understand why their school will be destroyed and what the future might bring.
The Taking of South Central…Philadelphia by Odunde. Real estate values are rising in what had been a predominantly African American neighborhood for the past century. Some residents face displacement as their South Philly neighborhood becomes part of Center City.
A Place of Hope by Oxford Mennonite Church. An Oxford Circle church serves as a bridge between old and new residents in this Northeast Philadelphia neighborhood.
