Event description
On the Brink a story of history, hope, and determination in Seattle

About this Event

On the Brink tells the story of a once-vibrant community on the brink of vanishing from Seattle and their struggle to hold on to a place to call home in light of the city’s rapid change.

Watch the trailer here.

Synopsis: Seattle’s Central District was the largest enclave of African Americans in the Pacific Northwest. The once-thriving community now finds its very existence threatened by change, which is tearing apart the social fabric of their neighborhood. With few African Americans left in the Central District, can they overcome the course of change before their community and its rich history vanish?

On the Brink tells a universal story of a struggle to hold on to a sense of community in the face of change, and finding hope in a time of despair.
