Film Summary:

"The Beckett "BE's": BE Thankful, BE Honest, BE Humble, BE Helpful, BE Kind, BE Determined, BE Creative, BE Healthy. BEing From Beckett is the oral history of Beckett Gardens Apartments housing development project located at 16th & Mater Streets, in the heart of North Philadelphia. Built-in 1968 after the riots, Beckett Gardens was created to house low-income families. Some forty years later has remained a beacon hope and a village of strength for everyone who resides there.
