A Place Called Desire is the story of an African American neighborhood found in New Orleans, told through the eyes of 60 individuals who called Desire home. The memories of those who lived and experienced Desire from its start provide both a promising and a cautionary tale of what people can accomplish when given opportunities and how systems and society at large can both help to build and destroy a community’s pursuit of the American Dream.
