‘Landmarks of Grand Rapids’ available on streaming video

Landmarks of Grand Rapids : A Look at the Neighborhoods of Sacred Heart Church, Heritage Hill, and Eastown is now available via streaming video through GRCC!  This local documentary “brings to life three significant areas of Grand Rapids: the Sacred Heart Church parish, Eastown, and Heritage Hill. Residents, activists, and scholars, including Dr. Norbert Hruby, Mary Alice Williams, Caroline Matecki, Fr. Ed Hankiewicz, Fr. Dennis Morrow, Joyce Makinen, Tom Logan, and Barbara Roelofs, share their memories of the past and describe how these neighborhoods have helped Grand Rapids become the vibrant city it is today.”

Librarian Steven Putt collaborated with Lori DeBie, Mike Klawitter, Klaas Kwant, and Simon Kittok to recreate a streamable, close-captioned version of the hour-long documentary that was produced in 2007 by the now-dormant Grand Rapids Area Council For The Humanities. The result – scholarship about local neighborhoods has become much more accessible than in the past.  Since posting, it has received more than 100 views!
