GPASA Screening of Owned: A Tales of Two Americas and a discussion after about a disturbing history of housing policy in America.

Event Details

The Graduate Public Administration Student Association (GPASA) at the University of Baltimore would like to invite you to a screening of Owned: A Tales of Two Americas.

Refreshments will be provided.

About Owned:

After World War II, US housing policy sought to create middle-class wealth through homeownership—but these benefits were largely intended for whites only. Today, we see the results: practices including redlining, predatory lending and unchecked speculation have Americans—of all races—shut out from the dream or drowning in real-estate debt. Moving from Levittown to Orange County to Baltimore, this timely film exposes the greed, flawed economic policy and systemic racism that distorted “the American dream” into a game only few can win.

Owned unearths the complicated, painful, often disturbing history of housing policy in America, shifting perceptions about what the idea of home means.

'Owned' is a fever dream vision into the dark history behind the US housing economy. Tracking its overtly racist beginnings to its unbridled commoditization, the doc exposes a foundational story few Americans understand as their own.

Theme: Social Equity, Public Policy, Housing Policy, Discriminate laws, Segregation history, foreclosure, Baltimore, Activism, Community, Crime, Race
