Soundslide: 40+ Years on W Rockland St with Mrs. Ada Pullett

Mrs. Ada Pullett talks about her 40+ years living on W Rockland St in this cool “soundslide” created by Temple University journalism students Shanise Redmon and Monet Tucker. Watch it below. Listen.

Lots of student volunteers and student journalists come by the block for service learning and reporting projects. Locally, we’ve had students from Drexel, Temple, and the University of Pennsylvania. We’ve also worked with students from St. John’s University in New York and Mount St. Mary’s University in Maryland.

Temple students Shanise and Monet stopped by to attend a block meeting and talk with residents. You can see the full story on Philadelphia Neighborhoods here, along with another longer video that reminds us (in a good way!) of a PBS neighborhood news story from the 1980s. Philadelphia Neighborhoods is a publication of Temple’s Multimedia Urban Reporting Lab.
