Join ASU's Hip Hop Cluster and Jeff Chang for a discussion exploring the contribution of the Movement for Black Lives, hip hop culture and public policy, using hip hop as a lens for social transformation.

Race and Resegregation in the City
Wednesday, September 12 | 7 p.m. | Eastlake Park - Community Center
What creative strategies can we imagine to ensure the right to affordable housing, safety and health of historically Black/Brown/Indigenous communities in newly gentrified areas? This public conversation features the vital work of community organizers and arts leaders who have come together to discuss the continued impact of race and resegregation along the south Phoenix light rail. We invite participants to dream together of the possibilities for more equitable development which centers the lives of those most impacted.
