The Great Divide investigates the vast inequities that exist in social mobility, job discrimination, housing and education in New York City through a series of opposing personal video stories.

The journalists explore some of the most important problems of our time: income inequality, lack of social mobility, discrimination and access to adequate and affordable housing and education. The project is nominated in the Public/Current/Community Affairs: Series category.

Prof. Hilke Schellmann taught the Studio 20 Spring 2019 course with web coach Gray Beltran.
