Event description

Description

We are pleased to invite you to the premiere of the documentary Policing Gentrification. A panel will engage the audience in discussion following the screening. This documentary explores the intersection of race, privilege, power, and law enforcement as new, primarily white, residents migrate into predominantly black communities in Washington, D.C. It presents multiple perspectives on the impact and significance of so-called gentrification for communities of color and community-police relations.

The documentary was created by Joseph Marcus, a recent SIS Graduate, as an MA capstone project.

The screening and discussion will be held Wednesday, October 11th at 6:00 pm at American University, School of International Service, Room #300.

Panelists include:

Kymone Freeman, Founder of We Act Radio

Dr. Sabiyha Prince, Urban Anthropologist and Author

Cmd. David Taylor, Commander of 6th District MPD
