Happening on Campus: At 6:30 pm today, in the Diana Event Oval, activist and Bronx-born documentarian Vivian Vázquez Irizarry will be screening her documentary A Decade of Fire, focusing on the rash of fires that plagued Black and Puerto Rican neighborhoods in the South Bronx in the 1970s, and explores racist and neglectful policies that still affect modern cities.
