“What Happened to Jackson Avenue: A Story of Urban Renewal” covers the urban renewal program that removed 125 families (79% Black), from the community of Nyack NY. These families lost their homes, families, and community as well as generational wealth which they have never recovered from. The film includes personal and emotional stories from individuals who were present and saw the destruction of their community, some of who are now in their 80s and 90s and want to be heard.
