2008 - Video

Because most of the folks who lived in the North Limestone neighborhood in 2008 singled out undeserved negative reputation as the neighborhood’s biggest problem, our students decided to make a video to highlight this issue.

The video included on-the-street interviews with residents of the North Limestone neighborhood, excerpts from oral history interviews recorded with people who live or work in the neighborhood, and two of the This I Believe essays written by class members that year. We premiered the video at our last class meeting at Al’s Bar, our "classroom" during CETA’s first year.

Listen to the This I Believe essay written and read by Patrick Smith, CETA 2008.
