SHORT FILM
Austin Revealed: Civil Rights Stories

From the 1928 “City Plan” that segregated Austin, to 21st century gentrification, this documentary explores the untold story of civil rights in Austin, Texas. Austin has a reputation for being a “progressive” city; is it really progressive on race? Directed by Mat Hames. Produced by KLRU.
