Oral Interview or Video Story – JS

For my video essay, I present how the Interstate-10 that was built on North Claiborne Avenue in Faubourg Treme, an African American neighborhood, in New Orleans, was not only unjust to the Treme neighborhood, but affected the Vieux Carre neighborhood unequally, a white neighborhood right next to the Treme neighborhood. In the video, I map not only Interstate-10, but also the Riverfront Expressway that was proposed to be built through Vieux Carre and was never built. Furthermore, I highlight how one organization CAHP (Claiborne Avenue History Project) is taking an initiative to preserve what is left in the Treme neighborhood.
