One of the wealthiest cities in the country has a secret. In the shadow of the swankiest downtown hi-rises, children are sleeping with roaches swarming their beds, black mold invading their lungs, and raw sewage bubbling up in the yards where they play. For decades, the 128 poor families who live in the Janie Poe housing project in Sarasota, Florida, were out of sight, out of mind. Condemned gives a voice to the families living inside the tenement, and shows how poverty and neglect are interlaced with racism, politics and power.
