African-Americans and Gentrification in D.C.

Sabiyha Prince

This morning, a conversation with a Baltimore-based cultural anthropologist who studies contemporary African-American urban life. Sabiyha Prince has written books and articles on the black middle class in Harlem, New York, diversity in the African-American community, and African-Americans and comedy. 

Her latest book is called African Americans and Gentrification in Washington, DC:  Race, Class and Social Justice in the Nation’s Capital. She joins Tom Hall to talk about it.

As Tom mentioned during the interview, during our year-long series The Lines Between Us, we discussed the barriers that separate neighborhoods,  the integration of neighborhoods, and the shrinking middle class in Baltimore.
