There is a screening of Prof. Anderson’s documentary My Brooklyn at Roosevelt House on Monday Sept. 9:
and one at the CUNY Grad Center on Tuesday Sept. 10:
My Brooklyn examines the gentrification of downtown Brooklyn centering on the Fulton Mall. Anderson “strikes a fine balance between personal journal and political exposé” (Variety) as she seeks to understand the forces shaping her borough along race and class lines. At the Graduate Center, Anderson will be interviewed by Mark Jacobson, contributing editor at New York magazine.
