Date: June 18, 2013
Location: 19th and Morris streets
The Story: It is a quintessential Philly scene: The 1900 block of Morris Street closed off, kids playing basketball, barbecues flaring and music blaring. Our news editor, Samantha Melamed, and I are hopping from block party to block party all across the city. We meet Shanada, a glowing recent high-school grad, well-dressed in a tropical-print dress, bracelets and platform wedges. She’s celebrating, and is seen here dancing in the street, hair flowing in the air, paper decorations taped to a garage grate behind her reading, “Way to Go Graduate.” Congratulations, Shanada.
