Segregation Now at Bronx Documentary Center
The BDC invites ProPublica and community members to a conversation on the state of race, economics, and education.
This spring, the Civil Rights Project released a study that revealed New York's schools are among the most segregated in the nation. Simultaneously, ProPublica launched their deeply reported piece, Segregation Now, which examines the United States after the Brown v Board of Education case.
This evening will feature a screening of the short documentary film "Saving Central," produced by Maisie Crow, and a panel that will include ProPublica's Nikole Hannah-Jones and Pedro Noguera, the Peter L. Agnew Professor of Education at New York University and executive director of the Metropolitan Center for Research on Equity and the Transformation of Schools. The event also features photographs by students from Tuscaloosa schools. Two of the students will be in attendance.
The event is part of the Bronx Documentary Center's summer exhibition and program series, The 60s: Decade of Change.
Suggested Donation $10, $5 for Bronx residents, children 18 and under free. Advanced Tickets Available Now.
