Presented as part of the St. Louis International Film Festival, “Mean Streets” includes screenings of narrative and documentary works that address the strong intersections between racial divisions and urban spaces. “Whose Streets?,” “Copwatch,” “In the Heat of the Night,” and “For Akheem” are among the films scheduled. “Mean Streets” is a collaboration between Cinema St. Louis, Washington University Libraries, the Missouri Humanities Council and the Missouri History Museum. “Mean Streets” is part of “The Divided City” initiative, a joint project of Washington University’s Center for the Humanities and the College of Architecture and Graduate School of Architecture and Urban Design. “The Divided City” is funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

All programs will be free and open to the public.
