Impact of Orlando on Central Brooklyn
This month two oral historians, Amaka Okechukwu (Weeksville Heritage Center) and Zaheer Ali (Brooklyn Historical Society), come on Third Rail to tackle the relevance of race in Central Brooklyn. First by examining the impact of the Crown Heights "Riots." Then we ask, are there dimensions that get missed by identifying Central Brooklyn
neighborhoods, as black. Listen here.

After the horrific shootings in Orlando last month, Brooklyn Deep paused to discuss the impact of Orlando on local LGBTQ community members with Tasha Amezcua (SOS Program Coordinator, Audre Lorde Project) & Z Bell (Member organizer, Brooklyn Movement Center). And Brooklyn Deep reporter Jarrett Lyons shares what he heard at various vigils and community gatherings around the city. Listen here.
