In the 1970s, the Bronx was on fire. Left unprotected by the city government, nearly a half-million people were displaced as their close-knit, multiethnic neighborhood burned, reducing the community to rubble. While insidious government policies caused the devastation, Black and Latino residents bore the blame. In this story of hope and resistance, Bronx native Vivian Vazquez exposes the truth about the borough’s sordid history and reveals how her embattled and maligned community chose to resist, remain and rebuild.

QA with the Film Producers will follow the movie screening:

  • Vivian Vazquez

  • Gretchen Hildebran

  • Neyda Martinez

*Light refreshments will be offered

Sponsored by The Center for New York City Affairs, Feet in 2 Worlds, and The Institute for Transformative Mentoring
