Listening Around the Neighborhood
Tommy, pictured here with his brother, Jason, is always looking out for others. Reflecting on his vision of community, he described a neighbor as “somebody who extends a helping hand to people no one else will.”
Virginia and Sharon wanted to have their photograph demonstrate what they believed it meant to be a neighbor in the face of rapid change locally and in their respective lives. Residents of public housing at the time this photo was taken, they reflected on how neighbors can often be more important than friends and family.
