  • This event has passed.

The From Slavery to Freedom Film Series, in partnership with the Frick Environmental Center of the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, examines themes from the History Center’s award-winning exhibition through the presentation of film screenings throughout the year.

In “Urban Roots,” a small group of dedicated citizens has started an urban environmental movement with the potential to transform a city. With the most vacant lots in the country, Detroiters are reclaiming their spirits by growing food. A timely, moving, and inspiring film, “Urban Roots” speaks to a nation grappling with collapsed industrial towns and the need to forge a sustainable and prosperous future.
