In this film and panel discussion program, we consider how racial divisions play out and are reinforced in concrete and asphalt, as cities continue to set exclusion in stone. The concrete seams demarcating communities are often sites of conflict and brutality when they are policed to fortify separation. But possibilities also exist at these seams. Possibilities challenging the divisions, and declaring that all of our neighborhoods and the people in them deserve the right to flourish. Join us to discuss the convergence of segregation, community development, the crisis of police brutality in Black and Brown neighborhoods, and narrative justice as a way forward.
To understand the ramifications of urban renewal and racial segregation at the local level, this program should be paired with Immersive Storytelling: Museum of the Hidden City Augmented Reality Walking Tour and Panel Discussion, which consists of a free, social-distancing-friendly walking tour in SF’s Fillmore District and a Zoom meeting group discussion on Sunday February 21, 2021 at 2:30pm PST.
