Here goes the neighborhood (excerpts)
Alethea Pace’s Here goes the neighborhood (excerpts) is an offering to the Bronx, a glimpse into memories of a place faced with forgetting, erasure, transformation, and possibility. It is an invitation to reclaim space and a reminder of the wealth of knowledge we have in our bodies, histories, and communities.
