Welcome to the Neighborhood - Screening and Conversation

Photographs of Mildred Howard and South Berkeley

When artist Mildred Howard, daughter of legendary Berkeley activist Mable Howard, loses her South Berkeley home due to soaring rental prices, it costs Berkeley a piece of its history and its legacy. This story of an African American family illuminates both personal power to create possibilities in adversity, and the broader issue of gentrification and a housing crisis that threatens a community’s diversity.

Pamela Uzzell, director of “Welcome to the Neighborhood,” is an award-winning documentary producer, director and editor. Following the film screening, she will be joined by fellow panelists Mildred Howard, Berkeley City Councilman Ben Bartlett, and Gloria Bruce, executive director of East Bay Housing Organizations
