Abstract

abstract:

During the 2018–19 academic year, the author oversaw the research, writing, and production of the Look Up, Look Out project. This collaborative endeavor aims to help visitors and state workers understand the social history of the communities of the Old Eighth Ward, the neighborhood displaced by the Capitol Park expansion beginning in 1911. Telling this story presented the research team with several challenges, including competing narratives and the tension between history and memory, but resulted in a richer history of this important multicultural neighborhood in the heart of the commonwealth's capital.
