Please join Conversations in Colors at Penn South Coop, on Thursday, December 7th, 2023 @ 6pm for a screening of the documentary "Razing Liberty Square" which explores the demolition of public housing in Miami Florida. The project shares many similarities with the NYCHA Chelsea project. 
Did Razing Liberty Square help improve residents living conditions or was it a new form of racism and gentrification?
