Gentrified: A Convo About Gentrification & Race
Jan 28, 2018 at 6:30 PM
Organizer: Nick Pickrell

As more white folks are drawn back to the city, individuals and developers are buying up land, businesses, and housing stock. This development displaces people of color, resulting in a cultural & historical loss and perpetuating economic disparities. Are we breaking down the Troost divide or simply pushing it further east? Join us for a conversation with Hakima Payne, director and founder of Uzazi Village, and Angela Martellaro, local real estate agent and SURJ member, for a conversation about gentrification and gentrifiers. We will be having a salad bar for dinner, so bring a side dish or dessert to share.
