Screening of On the Brink: A Central District Story of History, Hope, and Determination (2019, 58 min)

This year’s Common Reading Tales of Two Americas opens with a piece about the consequences of gentrification and development in a San Francisco neighborhood. We open the WSU Common Reading year with On the Brink, a 2019 documentary, directed by UW Professor Jeff Shulman, brings that topic to our own region, exploring the consequences of those processes in Seattle’s Central District, long a vibrant center of African American community and culture. Hosted by the Common Reading Program.
