Welcome to episode 3, Growing up Black in Swarthmore a Child’s Perspective: School, Play, Love. In episode three, HBN family and community members talk about shared intergenerational experiences that shaped and defined us as children such as, family by choice, making a friend / keeping a friend, beatins, and school. What are the stories, practices, moments and people that anchor the historically Black neighborhood of Swarthmore’s accounts? What are the human and cultural tolls of displacement? For me, walking through the neighborhood is bittersweet. While we welcome new neighbors with open arms to the HBN, I’m personally concerned that I will not be able to afford to continue to live in my childhood house within the next 5-10 years.
