Stories about "Fulbright"
"There is something about crouching beside someone, digging your hands into the same soft earth, cultivating the vegetables that will serve as the meal you will share together, that creates the strongest bonds of community, of family and of shared hope for a brighter future."--Women and gender studies and sociology major Alicia (Ali) Rabideau '17 of Natick, Mass., teaming up with organic community gardeners in Kingston's Southside neighborhood. Working in the garden, meeting Southside residents, and getting involved in neighborhood life were all p art of th intrepid fieldwork and ethnographic efforts that she and Keenan Shields '18 of Pittsford, N.Y., completed for their Short Term course "Place, Community, Transformation: Kingston, Jamaica," taught by Charles Carnegie, professor of anthropology.The Southside gardeners, from left:Janet Williams, Suzzette Wilson, Frank Williams, neighborhood filmmaker and friend Shaquille Brown, and Rash-sean Thomas. The Williams are brother and sister, as are Wilson and Brown.Also appearing with his father is Hussein Williams, 11.Closeup of scotch bonnet peppers.This garden is an initiative of IDC (Industrial Commercial Development).Later Ali and Keenan walked up the street to Life Yard, a former dumpy that is now a sustainable urban farm and restaurant collective that grows food and mentors community children. It's also where the idea for Paint Jamaica grew.Across the street from Life Yard at 41 Fleet Street is a second grassroots social initiative in an old warehouse courtyard that has been transformed by Paint Jamaica whose artists have transformed it into an al fresco mural exhibition. This is in the Parade Gardens section of the city.
