Only 10 minutes from Ferguson, Missouri, The College Hill district of St. Louis is in some ways the prototype for the collapse of an African American working class and the vicious impacts of local and federal housing policy in the U.S. over the last 60 years. Water Tower Place is a typical example of how Federal public housing and governance has stepped aside in favor of ‘low-income housing’ a complex of public and private funding initiatives to fund housing for the poor. This community has been abandoned by the police as well as city and state government. This portrait of a community examines how neighborhood leadership, comprised of a handful of leasing agents, maintenance men, apartment managers, community activists and local church leaders struggle valiantly to provide a structure to an overburdened community. After initial shoots, interviews, and community meetings we are currently planning for on location summer project which would produce a community archive with various online applications, student interns, and a possible feature.
