Join the East Harlem/El Barrio Community Land Trust for a free special screening of the “Arc of Justice: The Rise, Fall and Rebirth of a Beloved Community,” followed by a community discussion about land trusts, racial justice, and economic development.
The screening will take place on Saturday, December 15 from 6-9pm at Caabe Senior Houses, 150 East 121st Street, corner of Lexington Avenue.
The film traces the remarkable journey of New Communities, Inc. (NCI) in southwest Georgia and tells a story of racial justice, community organizing, and perseverance in the face of enormous obstacles. NCI was created in 1969 in Albany, Georgia by leaders of the Civil Rights Movement, including Congressman John Lewis, and Charles and Shirley Sherrod, to help secure economic independence for African American families.
Attendees are invited to meet and greet and asked to bring food and refreshments to share if possible.
Translation services and child care available upon request by December 7th.
