A deep dive of discovery into the Mantua neighborhood of West Philadelphia that was formerly known as the Black Bottom. Once a thriving neighborhood of middle-class Black residents, this neighborhood has forever been changed by the growth of University City. This piece will look at building community and how we all work together to make that a reality.
