An abandoned burial space discovered under a playground, a North Philly public housing community affected by university expansion, a closed parish that was once considered the Mother Church of Black Catholics — these precious places hold the memories of our communities and define where we live. A community history project from Scribe Video Center taught video production to people embedded in these local neighborhoods to show you what makes them so special.
