Barbara McAdams: That Home Feeling

Barbara McAdams has lived in two different homes in the Homewood neighborhood. From her office as a college guidance counselor, we talked about true meaning of community - people coming together for the fun times (parades and block parties) and the hard times (during break-ins or after the tornado). In her experience, Homewood has always been a relatively self-sufficient neighborhood filled with professional people; we discussed the ways that this self-sufficiency was a direct result of the leadership, courage, and morals of its residents. Viewing the current changes in Homewood, Ms. McAdams is concerned about how intentional actions are creating the gentrification she is seeing today, yet is determined to fight for her home.
