Summary

Arneichia Green discusses the Optimist Park neighborhood in Charlotte, North Carolina, where she has lived since 1997. She stresses her appreciation for the opportunity to move into a Habitat home through the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project, which provided her with a place to raise her children. She describes her involvement in her neighborhood church, Antioch Baptist Church. She downplays the impact of drug trafficking in the community, emphasizing rather the neighborliness of residents. She stresses her concern with changes in the community as new residents have moved into bigger homes and apartments. She reflects that these residents are less social than neighbors who have lived in the neighborhood longer, who she describes as being like family.
