Oral historian Dr. Kim Heikkila of Spotlight Oral History will be joining the LHENA board meeting on Wednesday, March 16 to present the Wedge Oral History Project. This grant-funded project was conceived by Wedge neighborhood historian Kathy Kullberg in 2020. Kathy wanted to add to the history of Lowry Hill East by interviewing residents and former residents who played pivotal roles in the neighborhood during the 1960s and 1970s, a transitional period during which struggles over zoning, housing, transportation, safety, and neighborhood identity rose to the fore. This was also the era that saw the establishment of LHENA and The Wedge community newspaper. Dr. Heikkila and interviewees will join us for a moderated discussion about their experiences in the neighborhood.
All are welcome to attend this virtual presentation.
