Show Me a Hero, a New HBO Miniseries About the Fight for Low Income Housing

Show Me a Hero is a new 6-part mini-series on HBO that tells the story of a young mayor who fights for low-income housing in a resistant middle-class neighborhood in Yonkers.

In an America generations removed from the civil rights struggles of the 1960s, the young mayor (Oscar Isaac) of a mid-sized city is faced with a federal court order to build a small number of low-income housing units in the white neighborhoods of his town. His attempt to do so tears the entire city apart, paralyzes the municipal government and, ultimately, destroys the mayor and his political future.
