Curator’s comments

The Millennium series deals with the scheduled 2012 razing of Poindexter Village, one of the nation's first federally funded, low-income housing complexes. Aminah is concerned that the destruction of the buildings will result in the loss of the history of this once lively Columbus neighborhood and the likelihood that the residents who are displaced might become homeless like the family in this rag-button manuscript page.
