Jess Garland is holding a live streaming event of her new film, Harp and Sol.

The experimental art film came out in May. It is about the history of environmental racism in Dallas. In particular, it explores the history of Joppa through examining zoning laws and local policies. Joppa is the neighborhood where the first freed and former slaves settled in the 1860s.

On June 29, Garland will host the live streaming of Harp and Sol. It will be followed by a talk and Q&A with Marsha Jackson of Southern Sector Rising. The organization works to improve health equity among the marginalized residents of Dallas by ending racist zoning, moving industrial polluters out of their neighborhoods and more evenly distributing the pollution burdens.

The streaming begins at 5 p.m. Register for the event here.
