First a vision of what could be on a 20 acre lot in the middle of South Los Angeles, brought to you by Ben Caldwaell, Julie Dash, Khary Jones and Regina Kimball and students who live in the area.
Then a call to action about what to do about Santa Barbara Plaza, nee Marlton Square, which has been in redevelopment limbo for 20 years.
It happens from 6 to 8 p.m. Sept. 14 at Dorsey High School Auditorium.

select group of American films preserved as National Treasures; • Kimball did the documentary “My Nappy Roots: A Journey Through Black Hair-itage;” • And Jones was named by indieWire as one of the "10 Exciting New Voices in Black Cinema."
