Identity / Pride

2019
Salem, Estados Unidos

The Point is a neighborhood in the city of Salem that has been mutating its social fabric since its inception.

It went from being an area of great importance in the commercial development of Salem at the beginning of the 19th century, to a depressed neighborhood after the great fire of 1914, which devastated a large part of the city.

After the great fire, many of the companies based in The Point left there.
This left the neighborhood with a large population, mainly Dominicans and Puerto Ricans, unemployed and at risk of social exclusion.

The Point became known as “El Punto”, the most stigmatized area of the city of Salem.
