Yessler Terrace in Seattle
The funkiest soul I know, my good buddy Lila Kitaef, is working out in Seattle as a media producer/activist/educator. She has a cool video piece about housing development and how it affects those on public assistance in Seattle. I only wish I was this informed about my own local housing scene here in Saint Paul, MN. I will have to do some homework and see what I can find out about my own fair city's public housing issues. But this is exactly the type of thinking that great indy media like this forces me to do. I simply don't find myself getting as intellectually involved watching the local news crap-posé after 15 min. of sports and weather.
Check out Lila's other awesome work with her video collective Pepperspray Productions and Reel Grrls. Reel Grrls is a too cool after school program that allows young women to become media savvy producers and consumers of their own world.
