We will be screening Kelly Anderson’s 2012 documentary, “My Brooklyn,” the story of her journey to understand the forces reshaping her neighborhood along lines of race and class. It raises questions of how we can heal the deep racial wounds embedded in our urban development patterns, and how we can become active in fixing a broken city planning process. We will hold breakout discussions after the film to discuss its themes and their applications to our work to find and secure affordable commercial space in New York City.
Please bring a dish or drink to share for the potluck – and end-of-year holiday celebration! You can list what you’ll bring in this handy sign up sheet!
Consider giving a donation of $5 at the door (though we encourage more!) so we can cover the costs of our host, UnionDocs, and the filmmaker for their work and generosity.
This is an event produced by the REIC U, a committee of the REIC that creates educational programming for our membership and the public.
