Event Details

Join People’s Tours for an exploration of the effects of the South End’s long tradition of community activism and the neighborhood’s changing demographics on its physical character over the years. Many notable landmarks, including the Tent City and Villa Victoria housing developments as well as Southwest Corridor Park, were conceived and developed in direct response to community protest movements against drastic redevelopment plans in the middle of the last century. How do these past neighborhood challenges and successes still resonate in the present day?
