11th Street Bridge Park: FREE Documentary Screening "The Arc of Justice"*OFF CAMPUS EVENT

Join us for a FREE screening of the documentary "The Arc of Justice" which connects the birth of Community Land Trusts to the civil rights movement. The film traces the remarkable journey of New Communities, Inc. in southwest Georgia, a story of racial justice, community organizing and perseverance in the face of enormous obstacles. Please note: this event does NOT take place on THEARC's campus.

Following the screening, panelists will lead a community conversation about the formation of a Bridge Park Community Land Trust, a key recommendation of the Park's Equitable Development Plan. Panelists include:

  • Robert Burns - City First Homes
  • Kymone Freeman - We Act Radio
  • Zach Murray - Grounded Solutions Network
  • Bob Reeder - Rural LISC

This event augments the “Power to the People: Community Land Trusts & Anacostia” program hosted by the 11th Street Bridge Park and City First Homes in November 2016.
