Brick by Brick: A Civil Rights Story

( 2007: 51 mins., Director William Kavanagh)
 

Tuesday, October 21 , 6:15 pm
UDC David A. Clarke School of Law 
Studio, B Level, Bldg 38
4200 Connecticut Ave., NW Washington, DC 20008

A film about a contemporary American battle for civil rights, in which we follow three families in New York State as they confront racial discrimination in housing and schools, and struggle to achieve justice. Brick by Brick describes how a ghetto was created through public policies, and brings to the screen the fiery legal and political crucible of a contemporary city and its larger implications for our nation. The film tracks the federal US v Yonkers litigation that challenged neighborhood and educational discrimination. 

Followed by a Q&A with documentary director William Kavanagh and Louise Howells, Co-director of UDC’s Community Development Clinic

The screening is preceded by a MASTERCLASS with director William Kavanagh from 5:30 to 6:15pm. If you would like to attend this as well, please state this in your RSVP.

RSVP: DEvansPritchard@udc.edu; 202-274-6256
