If you’ve ventured out to Fort Greene lately, you might have noticed that, like the rest of Brooklyn, it’s slowly becoming known for its clean parks, spacious renovated brownstones and new, young professional residents. This gentrified scene, however, isn’t how veteran residents of the area remember their community. In this trailer for a new documentary entitled Brooklyn Boheme which stars Spike Lee, Chris Rock, Rosie Perez and more, narrator Nelson George takes us back to a prolific period when Fort Greene was a place where magic happened for a talented generation of young African American writers, artists and musicians before explaining why, and how, it all ended.
