Talking Gentrification with Documentary, My Brooklyn

20130619-173205.jpg

Sadly, gentrification is too often a code word for erasing diversity – racial, economic, social, and political. We recently learned about My Brooklyn, a documentary exploring changes within New York City’s iconic borough since 2001. Swanky condominiums and retail stores began appearing, transforming the landscape.

The film screening (suggested donation of $5) and discussion on Thursday, June 20, 7pm at MICA’s new graduate center (131 W. North Ave.) are hosted by our favorite radicals, Red Emma’s and Station North Arts & Entertainment. Stay afterwards for dialogue moderated by John Duda and Kate Khatib.

Check out the conversation on the Marc Steiner show.
