The Demise of the West Side

BY PHILLITIA CHARLTON
@ VOL 31 ON MAY 18, 2017

Phillitia Charlton's song and poetry is a poignant description of the condition of Dayton's west side and the hope of healing through the Wesley Center. She artfully depicts the reality of her past and the present of others living in the area.
