Program Description

Boston's South End is well known for its extensive revitalization, and one of its development projects has special meaning to Latinos: "Villa Victoria," a project spearheaded by the community development organization IBA (Inquilinos Boricuas en Accion). Say Brother traces the development of IBA from its inception to the powerful social force that it is today with executive director Jorge Hernandez. Key issues explored are organizational structure, community involvement, and self-education.
