A storyteller's story

West Grove 2008

In audio, multimedia on August 21, 2010 at 3:02 pm

More than 30 students from the University of Miami spent Election Day 2008 documenting the thoughts, reactions and interactions of people who live in west Coconut Grove, Miami’s oldest black community. Bahamian settlers founded the area now simply known as the West Grove in the late 1800s before Miami was a city.

The goal of West Grove 2008 was to give voice to an often-overlooked community, allowing residents to share their perspectives on the most memorable presidential election in modern times.
