Over the course of 2021, 12 local residents and activists volunteered to be filmed over an interview that asked to resurface old memories of Eastex Jensen to get a record of the current heartbeat of the neighborhood. By framing the past, the 12 local residents provided us with an intimate window into their lives and how they experience community in Eastex Jensen.
Collectively, their stories become a record of how their ideas and experiences of community within Eastex Jensen have shaped their personal and professional paths, and ultimately shed light on their undeniable love and affection for the community. Their stories urge us to remain local and to construct our own versions of community. Most of them are incidentally already working in local non-profits, civic associations, or local businesses under the heartfelt belief that change must start now. And more importantly, they suggest that change must begin from within the neighborhood.
If you have more memories to share, please write them in our forum! or send us a message through the chat box here.
