If you haven't gotten the chance to see it yet, we very much suggest you check out Families United for Racial and Economic Equality's (FUREE's) film, Some Place Like Home. It is narrated by writer and activist Kevin Powell, and focuses on the exclusion of low-income families and small businesses from the development of Fort Greene and Downtown Brooklyn.
