Have you read the book? Did you live it? Share your experience!
Grand Stand Pictures will soon begin production of a full length documentary film inspired by the book, A City Within A City by Dr. Todd Robinson. The film explores the effects of managerial racism on the Black community in the city of Grand Rapids.

In a live community conversation featuring Dr. Todd Robinson, Dr. Randal Jelks and T.A. El Amin, learn more about the full length documentary project and share your input and experience. Join us as we share stories and delve into the history and impact of structural racism on our city. 

This event is presented by the Grand Rapids Public Library, Grand Stand Pictures, and BPGR.
