This powerful hour-long documentary traces the effect of public policy—particularly in housing—on inequality in America. It features law professor John A. Powell, a guest for the October 26 “Lines Between Us” segment about public housing, and it lays out at the national level many of the issues that our series is grappling with at the regional level.

Maryland Morning host Sheilah Kast will serve as moderator for the post-screening discussion. Panelists include:
– Diane Bell-McKoy, President & CEO, Associated Black Charities
– Bishop Douglas Miles, organizer of Baltimore’s Koinonia Baptist Church and Clergy Co-Chair of Baltimoreans United in Leadership Development (BUILD)
