We are SO impressed with the Youth Channel producers at the MNN El Barrio Firehouse Community Media Center! The media they're creating is critical, hard-hitting and change-making. Case in point: "Space Violence," which we're featuring as today's Clip of the Week.
The piece examines gentrification in urban neighborhoods, asking, "Have you ever considered gentrification as a form of violence against our communities?" The video presents footage from an event recently held in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn by the Safe Outside The System Collective in which participants spoke about this issue as it relates to police brutality. The group also discussed how to stay safe without calling the NYPD.
Watch this provocative clip and tell us what you think.
