About North End Stories:
North End Stories is a digital narrative project that aims to collect, preserve, and share the stories of Italian-Americans whose families immigrated to Boston’s North End in the late 19th and early 20th century.
How has the neighborhood changed since 1900? since 1950? How have lifestyles changed? What has stayed the same? How is Italian-American culture alive today in the North End? The project is a series of video interviews, a booklet of photos and quotes, and an interactive website. More at http://northendstories.com.
Jeanne Dasaro was commissioned by Boston Rising to produce 5 Rising Class Stories from Boston’s North End. These videos are below.
About Rising Class:
Launched in 2012, the Rising Class is a new initiative from Boston Rising, a dynamic nonprofit organization committed to ending the cycle of poverty by enabling people to chart their own paths to success.
At Boston Rising, we believe that everyone is born to rise and that all of us are part of a single class — the Rising Class. While each of us must succeed according to our own ambitions and goals, we all need access to the proper tools to rise: a quality education, a shot at a good job, and the right social connections.
