South Beach, A Ghetto In The Sun

New, 2 comments

The Wolfson Florida Moving Image Archives has a rich repository of videos of old Miami, with many uploaded to YouTube. "Momma Lives On Miami Beach" was a documentary made by WPGL in 1974 about South Beach. It showed a radically different neighborhood than we know today. This was the notoriously poor, the notoriously old, and the notoriously depressed South Beach, the sad South Beach we hear about and one of the old Miami stereotypes that hasn't yet totally died. Part one of "Momma Lives On Miami Beach" is above. To watch the rest, check out their YouTube page here.
