One Book, One Community Event: "Class Divide" followed by a panel discussion

6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
East Lansing Public Library

Description

As part of One Book, One Community, the library will hold a showing of Class Divide. The film will be followed by a panel discussion featuring:

Brian Gilmore, Associate Clinical Professor of Law & Director of the MSU Housing Clinic

Rawley VanFossen, Executive Director of the Capital Area Housing Partnership

Gabriel Biber, Executive Director of Haven House

This event is open to all in the community. The film is rated TV-PG and is 75 minutes.

"The thought-provoking documentary Class Divide is a timely look at the widening divide between the 'haves' and 'have nots.' Young people on both sides of the gap offer unique and honest insights that challenge common perceptions about inequality today." The film "highlights the effects of hyper-gentrification and growing inequality through the microcosm of New York City's West Chelsea neighborhood, focusing on an intersection where an elite private school sits directly across the street from low-income public housing."
