December 8 @ 7:00 PM

A multimedia performance that brings to life a 100-year history of housing and urban policy that documents how separate has never been equal.

The performance is 60 minutes and will include imagery, song, spoken word, and acting. There will be discussion following this performance. Participation by the audience is encouraged.
