Please join us for a screening of Decade of Fire, followed by a Q&A with Directors Gretchen Hildebran and Vivian Vasquez .

SYNOPSIS: In the 1970s, the Bronx was on fire. Abandoned by city government, nearly a half-million people were displaced and their community reduced to rubble.While insidious government policies caused the devastation, Black and Puerto Rican residents bore the blame. In this story of hope and resistance, Bronx-born Vivian Vazquez exposes the truth about the borough’s untold history and reveals how her embattled and maligned community chose to resist, remain and rebuild.

Please RSVP for Decade of Fire
