The six-part miniseries from the creator of The Wire and the director of Crash, depicts the true story of a young mayor (Oscar Isaac) whose attempt to fulfill a federal court order to build low-income housing in white neighborhoods tears his city apart. We’ll watch two episodes each Sunday, followed by an hour for moderated discussion. The series tells the story of life in Yonkers, NY between 1987-1994 as a white middle-class neighborhood’s resisted federally mandated scattered-site public housing development.
