Crown Heights Encounters: Listening Back, Moving Forward

Aug 10, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Twenty-five years after the August 1991 Crown Heights riot, BHS, in partnership with Weeksville Heritage Center and Brooklyn Movement Center, gathers for an evening to reflect on the history and future of Crown Heights. Featuring a performance, oral history presentation, and a panel discussion moderated by Inside City Hall host and CNN contributor Errol Louis, the three-part program will explore the multi-storied past of the neighborhood, including issues of ethnic relations, racial justice, and urban renewal that continue to shape the lives of its residents today.
