Audio Interference 42: Social Justice Tours
December 1, 2017
“My favorite thing is just the dialogue that gets created, and having people understand a little bit more about their communities and the potential for them to slow down or halt directions that they may not want it to go in.”
In this episode, we talk to Dan Kaminsky and Michael Higgins Jr of Social Justice Tours (www.socialjusticetours.com). Social Justice Tours uses tours as a medium to dig beneath the surface of what New Yorkers regularly see. We aim to engage New Yorkers in a critical dialogue about the past, present and future of our city, from the perspective of marginalized populations. The ultimate aim is to assist in movement building; that is to disperse information, expose injustice, and highlight inequality in a digestible, understandable way to encourage thought and inspire action. The group offers tours focusing on Trump’s influence in midtown, gentrification in Williamsburg, and the radical history of Lower Manhattan. In this episode, Rob Smith and Tyler McBrien take a tour on environmental justice in Gowanus.
