As cities gentrify, what tactics are black artists and communities using to fight back against displacement and the narrative that their neighborhoods are broken until “saved” by white gentrification? How are artists and activists reaffirming, reclaiming, and rewriting the narrative of the city and making spaces that serve their own needs?
These films and the panel discussion work to shift audience perspectives, make space for voices often unheard, and pay tribute to both those who used to live in these spaces and the resilience of those who carry on.
