2018 Preservation Month Screening
Wednesday, May 9 at 8:00pm

Arguably no one did more to shape understanding of the modern American city than Jane Jacobs, the visionary activist and author of “The Death and Life of Great American Cities” who fought to preserve urban communities in the face of destructive development projects. Here, she fights against the ruthless redevelopment projects of urban planner Robert Moses. Learn about Jacob’s fights with this new documentary at the Old Greenbelt Theatre. Afterward, University of Maryland professors Dr. Mary Corbin Sies and Dr. Isabelle Gournay will speak about Jacobs’ legacy.

This is the first of the 2018 Preservation Month events sponsored by Maryland Milestones. Check out their website at to learn more about these events.
