Civic Summit: East Austin Revealed is a community discussion examining East Austin's race issues, past and present. African Americans in Austin have historically formed communities east of I-35, originally by law. As our city grows these communities are threatened, leading to the dissolution of close-knit relationships built over time. Dr. Kevin Michael Foster, Associate Professor of African and African Diaspora Studies at UT will moderate a panel discussion including opportunity for audience comments and questions. 

 

The discussion will follow a screening of Austin Revealed: Civil Rights Stories, a documentary featuring interviews with prominent citizens about their experience during Austin’s civil rights period, the effect of segregation and what gentrification has meant to the city. Watch the Austin Revealed videos
