Princeton Housing Initiatives and the Princeton Garden Theater are co-hosting a special screening of the documentary, Owned: A Tale of Two Americas on Wednesday, September 25 at 7:30.
“Director Giorgio Angelini’s visually rich, energetic film untangles the complex history of homeownership in America. Revealing the roots of its racist underpinnings and the systematic unequal division of opportunity between whites and blacks in the U.S. housing economy, the film demonstrates how racial inequality was institutionalized in the postwar U.S. housing market, with effects that continue to reverberate today.” Click here to see a trailer.
