The Liberty Square public housing community in Miami becomes ground zero for climate gentrification
Razing Liberty Square is a film by Katja Esson. Liberty City, Miami, was home to one of the oldest segregated public housing projects in the U.S. Now with rising sea levels, the neighborhood’s higher ground has become something else: real estate gold. Wealthy property owners push inland to higher ground, creating a speculators’ market in the historically Black neighborhood previously ignored by developers and policy-makers alike. Featured on Independent Lens, the film is available on-demand through 4/28/24.
