The scope of the project has been changed from community identity to place, sense of place, and how culture creates place. This will possibly align better with the efforts and examining the beach. It will be compared to other previously segregated beaches in the area including Virginia Key beach.
This visit included an interview with a former beach goer and Homestead resident and also a Miami-Dade Park employee. The park employee shared some photos and information although he had no experience with the beach at that time.
I am going to be on an internet radio show ( www.blogtalkradio.com ) on May 19th to describe the project to bring more awareness. Listen to the show if you can and call in if you have something to say! Thanks in advance!
