Roads Built In Hope

Ringed by freeways and dotted with superfund sites, cement factories, recycling and wastewater facilities, West Oakland residents  rise like tender grass through cracks in asphalt.

Development has began at a pace of cold molasses.  Roads built in hope mix with anxiety and apprehension.  Inevitably, some will get paved over, caught in the amber and frozen in time until forgotten.  Hope for the future is simply living the present.
