EPISODE 46 – REDLINING, GRAFFITI & MUTUAL AID IN EAST HOLLYWOOD

In our 46th episode, we chat with Ali Rachel Pearl: @alirachelpearl, who teaches writing in one of USC’s honors programs, and who’s directing a very special art campaign drawing attention to our Redlining, Gentrification and Housing Panel Series with This Side of Hoover: @samanta_helou. In addition to details for the campaign, Ali and I chat about her arrival to East Hollywood, her coming to terms with her initial entry into the area “as a gentrifier,” favorite intersections and moments in East Hollywood, and violence in suburbia VS violence in the inner city. We also discuss Ali and friends’ new East Hollywood Mutual Aid project. RSVP to our panel series ASAP!
