Seattle’s Central District was the largest enclave of African Americans in the Pacific Northwest. The once-thriving community now finds its very existence threatened by change, which is tearing apart the social fabric of their neighborhood. With few African Americans left in the Central District, can they overcome the course of change before their community and its rich history vanish? On The Brink tells a universal story of a struggle to hold on to a sense of community in the face of change, and finding hope in a time of despair.
