Following the film, there will be a discussion moderated by Dr. John Lloyd, Associate Professor of History, CPP

Citizen Jane (2017), tells the story of author and activist Jane Jacobs and her efforts to organize her community to fight a proposed highway through her New York City neighborhood in the 1960s. Jacobs also wrote eloquently about what makes cities vibrant, democratic spaces for people, and her arguments are as relevant today as they've ever been.
