East Austin Revealed

Episode 6 | 56m 46s

A community discussion examining east Austin's race issues, past and present. African Americans in Austin have historically formed communities east of I-35, originally by law. Today gentrification threatens to dissolve the close-knit relationships and communities built over time. As our city grows, how can we productively discuss these issues in a way that leads to positive action.
