Vanessa Martinez Wants The Neighborhood Of Her Childhood Back

Parish Photography

Vanessa loves her childhood neighborhood, but the trajectory of the neighborhood has gone the wrong direction. It no longer represents the self-sustaining tight-knit community of her youth. She had always known it was special and deserved better, but that fact was driven home one night when she found a feature film on YouTube that spotlighted her house (in part 7 of 8).

She talks about her hopes for the neighborhood on the Worth Repeating stage, as part of our November third event with the theme "On The Street Where I live."

 Worth Repeating is Texas Public Radio's live, storytelling event series that looks to bring the Sound of San Antonio out through the stories of your friends and neighbors
