TriPod Xtras: Broadmoor Neighborhood History Dialogue
This is another edition of TriPod Xtras. We’ve cut together some highlights from a really interesting panel we went to a little while back, put on by the Broadmoor Improvement Association and held at Propeller. This event was right up our alley, because it was a mashup of oral history and community engagement, which gave space for elders to share their experiences alongside folks that are doing work today. This sizzler reel-type segment gives a feel for what the event was like and catches the moments that made it worth it.
The Neighborhood Partnership Network’s Timolynn Sans Sumter moderated the conversation, so you’ll hear her first, followed by panelists Moon Landrieu, former mayor of New Orleans and the father of the city’s current Mayor, Mitch Landrieu. Then you’ll hear from former state representative Rosalind Peychaud, followed by Improvement Association board member, Mateal Lawhorn. The group discussed Broadmoor’s past and the potential for its future.
