Primeros Viernes – Decade of Fire
December 6, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$10
In the 1970s the Bronx was on fire. Abandoned by city government, nearly a half-million people were displaced as their close-knit multi-ethnic neighborhood burned to the ground. While insidious government policies caused the devastation, Black and Puerto Rican residents bore the blame. Now Bronx-born, Vivian Vasquez Irizarry exposes the truth about the borough’s untold history and reveals how her community chose to resist, remain, and rebuild.
