11, 9:30 - 11:30am: Screening
and panel discussion of Holding Ground.
Holding Ground is at once a cautionary
tale of urban policies gone wrong and
a message of hope for all American cities.
In 1985, African-American, Latino, Cape
Verdean, and European-American residents
in Roxbury, MA united to revitalize their
community. The Dudley Street Neighborhood
Initiative went on to gain national recognition
as residents fought to close down illegal
dumps, gain unprecedented control of land
from City Hall and create a comprehensive
plan to rebuild the fabric of their community.
Through the voices of committed residents,
activists and city officials, this moving
documentary shows how a Boston neighborhood
was able to create and carry out its own
agenda for change.
Screening and panel discussion followed
by a light lunch. The screening is located
at the Annie E. Casey Foundation, 701
St. Paul St., Baltimore, MD 21202. Phone
410-547-6600. More information about the
screening to come...
scheduled fall events include a ribbon cutting
ceremony for the rededication of the Revitalization
Resource Center, and a town hall meeting
on State Circle, Maryland's news authority
for state government and public policy,
hosted by Jeff Salkin.
