City of Champions: A Portrait of Brockton

"In collaboration with photographer Mary Beth Meehan, Historian Willie A. Wilson, Jr., and Artists for Humanity photography coordinator Haidan Hodgson, 10 Brockton students spent the summer of 2012 learning how to use documentary photography to explore their lives, immersing themselves in Brockton’s rich history, and learning and to see themselves as a vital part of that history. Twelve of their resulting photographs were been reproduced as large-scale banners.

With generous support from The Massachusetts Foundation for the Humanities, The Office of Mayor Linda Balzotti, the Brockton Redevelopment Authority, Brockton Community Schools, Metro South Chamber of Commerce, and Stonehill College."
