Screening of new documentary on the lower Cass Corridor in Detroit, investigating the history of the area, African-American & Asian issues, and neighborhood development. The film explores how residents survived community changes, how they sometimes didn`t, who fled the area and why - as gentrification now redefines the Corridor - long home to the poor and disenfranchised as well as to the artists and visionaries of the city. To be followed by discussion on local history and future land use.
