In this episode of Regular Black Women I am joined by performance artist and documentarian Afua Monk Addo. We discuss the history of the Cooper Houses, a public housing project in Brooklyn's Greenpoint community, and how race, politics, and economics have shaped both Black identity and the public image of public housing. In addition we touch on: the Importance of Ownership, the 1921 Massacre of Black Wall St., Addo's Upcoming Cooper Houses Documentary, Trends in NYC Real Estate, and much more
