Sustainability Fellow Discusses Community Impacts of L.A.'s Freeway Construction

Events and Exhibitions

At an event earlier this spring at USC's Sustainability Hub, the USC Libraries' inaugural sustainability fellow, PhD student Amber Santoro, presented “Driven Apart: Displacement Along the Century/105 Freeway." This digital exhibit draws from the libraries' Century Freeway Collection and documents how freeway construction impacted marginalized communities in Los Angeles. Santoro recently sat down for an interview with Vanessa Codilla of the USC Wrigley Institute to discuss her exhibit and the archival research that went into it.

The Summer Primary Source Research Fellowship on Sustainability is presented in partnership with the USC Wrigley Institute for Environment and Sustainability and the USC Van Hunnick History Department. An announcement of this summer's sustainability fellows is forthcoming.
