Longtime residents of Overtown tell stories of how it used to be. In the early 1960s, a freeway divided the community into fractions of mostly unusable land equalling 43 acres. Overtown no longer has hotels, motels, theaters, restaurants, factories, parlors, or a hospital. The population of blacks has dropped from 100,000 in the 1960s to 14,000 today.

We walked down the streets of Overtown dispelling myths and sharing cherry trees with members of the community. We learned that the TV news had been spreading fear to residents about the FTAA demonstrations. Listen to this group conversation about life in Miami, corporate globalization, and the TV news. Then ask yourself, "What could I do with $8.5 million?"
