A screening and panel discussion of "Brick City", which is an award-winning documentary series that captures the daily drama of a community striving to become a better, safer, stronger place to live. While the series focuses on how Newark’s citizens and its Mayor, Cory A. Booker, fight to raise the city out of nearly a half century of violence, poverty and corruption, the issues facing Newark are similar to those in many other older industrial cities as well.

This event is co-sponsored by the Institute of Politics, HKS's Program in Criminal Justice Policy and Management, the Taubman Center for State and Local Government, and the Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston.
