On this special edition of Independent Sources hosted by Garry Pierre-Pierre, we hear about how several cash strapped Brooklyn churches are learning about selling their air rights in an effort to develop affordable housing in their neighborhoods and save their congregations. We also learn more about the city’s new Municipal ID program. Then Garry speaks to Muta’Ali Muhammad and Jevon Frank, the director and producer of a film about the actors and activists, Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee.
