Telling the story of places and people

PhilaPlace – Sharing Stories from the City of Neighborhoods is a joint project with one of the key faculty members, Amy Hillier, being at the City and Regional Planning department at the University of Pennsylvania’s excellent School of Design.

I particularly like the sites documenting W.E.B DuBois and the fact that the site is interactive–you can add a story. You can also create a family socio-spatial family history to save under your login to share with your friends and family.
