Windsor Park: The Sinking Streets
WINDSOR PARK: THE SINKING STREETS
One of the first all-Black housing communities in North Las Vegas is seeking justice after withdrawal of groundwater and geological faults caused their homes and streets to sink and crack. Although the government offered financial help to relocate, it was not enough to buy comparable homes, and many residents were financially unable to take advantage of it. They feel ignored and neglected by their government. The film questions whether this is an issue of systemic racism.
