Reimagining Community: Finding Sanctuary in Public Spaces

Monday, April 9, 2018, 6:30-8PM


Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture
515 Malcolm X Blvd, New York, NY 10037


Public spaces like parks, sidewalks and public-facing walls, can offer narratives produced by residents and reflect a community’s values and norms. Gentrification often disrupts those narratives and blurs the line between development and erasure.


This program is presented in partnership with The Laundromat Project and the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, New York Public Library.
