The Liebert Cassidy Whitmore Film Series on “The Role of Law in American Society” continues at the Center on April 7th with showings of Brick by Brick: A Civil Rights Story at 6pm and 7:45pm. Admission is free, but seating is limited.
The film follows three Yonkers, NY families from the 1970s to the 1990s as they navigate a bitter confrontation in the city over housing and school desegregation. The documentary also recounts the heroic efforts of grassroots activists to keep alive their battle against racial isolation and housing discrimination, as well as the infamous 1988 confrontation between the Federal courts and the City of Yonkers.

The Riverside Community College District would like to thank the law firm of Liebert Cassidy Whitmore for their generous sponsorship of this series.
