Austin Screening of “Segregated By Design”
Before all the social distancing and quarantining began, I was able to have a screening of “Segregated By Design” in my community of Austin, Tx. It was a roaring success, featuring an amazing panel of Richard Rothstein, Dr Richard Reddick, Sherwynn Patton and myself. We talked about the history of residential segregation in Austin and what we can do about it today. I was also able to share my process for creating the animation for the documentary. The wonderful photos below were taken by Kirsten Holliday.
Segregated by Design will have a special screening on march 5th with richard rothstein and i in conversation. for more details and rsvp, CLICK HERE!!
