    During the Sixties and early Seventies, banks, insurance companies, the City of New York, and many landlords drew a red-line around the Bronx and abandoned its neighborhoods. More than 12,000 fires burned each year, 300,000 people fled, and in the South Bronx 40% of the homes were destroyed. To stop this abandonment and devastation in the NW Bronx, community people of every color and ethnic background, working people, poor people, college students, Catholic priests, and their congregations formed a ten-neighborhood coalition. This video celebrates the 25-year struggle of that Coalition and its successes. In their own words, neighbors document their history and hold up a vision for "ordinary people" everywhere that together they can transform lives and heal their communities.
