“‘Flag Wars’ is a poignant account of the politics and pain of gentrification. Working-class black residents in Columbus, Ohio fight to hold on to their homes.” – PBS
This topic is so appropriate for us to be studying right now. The southside of St. Petersburg is being gentrified more and more. The city calls it 'redevelopment' but the African community is being displaced. Participate in this study to learn more about how this happens and what we can do to support real economic development for the black community!
