In honor of Fair Housing Month, Open Communities Presents:
“A House Divided” from the 2016 Epix Original Documentary Series America Divided

Housing Action Illinois is going to join Open Communities for an evening of film, discussion, and spoken word poetry from acclaimed Chicago poet Billy Tuggle as we explore the struggle to achieve fair and affordable housing in our communities today.

In “A House Divided,” Norman Lear visits New York City, home to some of the nation’s starkest images of inequality, to investigate the struggle for housing that New York City residents and families across the country face. The creator of “All in the Family,” “Good Times” and “The Jeffersons” speaks with tenants, realtors, people experiencing homelessness, housing activists, landlords, and city officials—uncovering an affordability crisis, hedge fund speculation on residential housing, and a legacy of racist discrimination that still persists today.

BIlly Tuggle is a vocalist, performance poet, activist, mentor, teaching artist and parent; He is co-host of Chicago’s In One Ear and Mental Graffiti open mics. Billy’s most recent collection is the chapbook ‘Incantation’.
