This Wednesday, June 8th, we will be showing the locally-produced documentary “Ninth Street Divide.” Ninth Street is widely regarded as the physical manifestation of the barrier between the East and West ends of Louisville, where urban renewal in the 1960’s led to the rise of expressways and the demolition of African American-owned businesses. This documentary, from the Ky Place series (trailer), features Dana Duncan, Haven Harrington III, Joe Dunman, and Attica Scott discussing ways to reconnect our divided communities.
After the film, a panel of local leaders will lead us in a discussion of the Ninth Street divide, and how we can work together to build new bridges across it. The panel will consist of David James, Haven Harrington, and Camille Barbee Olmstead.
This is an important film, and an even more important discussion. Please join us Wednesday to learn, talk, and connect!
