Miss Jackie on the return to Hunters Point

Miss Jackie works with Hunters Point Family to maintain a community garden that is important to public housing residents and the larger neighborhood. She is featured in a new video that can be found here.

From the story, Superfund City by Crystal Carter
Jackie Williams starts the day off in her neighborhood garden...She checks out her black-eyed-pea plant, and the beans are ready to harvest...She loves her job and she loves where she lives but she doesn’t believe that she will be able to keep these things when the developers come and tear down what she has called home for over 30 years.

“They told us that we need to be ready to move out when they say,” Williams says. “They told us that we’d be able to move back, but I’ll believe it when I see it.”
