Twenty five years ago, the Dudley Street Triangle in Roxbury was a moonscape of arson-charred vacant lots that lured illegal trash and toxic waste dumping—a recipe for neighborhood collapse. A one hour documentary Holding Ground, completed in 1995, told the story of how the neighborhood seized control of its destiny and began rebuilding its community. Today after providing more than 250 homes to low income owners through an ingenious land trust arrangement and after building scores of community organizations to meet the needs of the neighborhood, we revisit the Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative and many of its original characters.
