Interview with Sabrina Baker-Bouie, Part 1 of 4
From - UM Libraries on August 20th, 2015
Although the interview was to deal primarily with parks and other public spaces, Ms. Baker-Bouie broadened the scope of the session to include a discussion of the Overtown neighborhood as a whole, while still maintaining the focus of the interview. She puts forth that public spaces are tied to housing, neighborhood maintenance, community services, education, and countless other factors, which have to be dealt with and considered as a whole. In terms of public spaces, Ms. Baker-Bouie talks extensively about Gibson Park and Dorsey Park, with some mention of Range Park and the smaller mini-parks that pervade the community. She also talks about crime, police, community programs, and the community’s political history.
