Making Film with Radicalized Detroit

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Detroit School of Arts, part of the Detroit Public School system, was a major institution for black arts in Detroit. Due to its key location, the school was taken over by the University of Michigan and cuts to programs and termination of long-term faculty followed. The school community was left out of the decision-making process. The DSA community authored a documentary that chronicles the devastating results of the takeover. Learn about our collective filmmaking process and engage in discussion.
