Scope and content
The Grand Avenue Vision Plan and Master Plan which were spearheaded Samina Quareshi, Luce Professor in Family and Community, with the participation of several University departments, promotes the social, economic and physical renaissance of the West Grove neighborhood. UM students, majoring in a variety of academic disciplines including architecture, history and communications, captured the history and the spirit of the community by creating oral histories, photographs, cultural maps and architectural drawings of the people and places of West Grove. Their initial work was showcased in an original video documentary that was shown at a community block party in May of 2002.
