"Breaking Boundaries" with Jessi Grieser
What We Talk About When We Talk About Gentrification

Gentrification is happening in cities across the United States and around the world. While it often gets framed in terms of urban renewal and development of new resources, these framings can obscure the real ways it impacts residents in the gentrifying locale. Drawing on ten years of research in a historically Black neighborhood in Washington, D.C., Professor Grieser demonstrates the discourse strategies existing Black residents use to position themselves against gentrification, and in turn, to lay claim to their neighborhood as Black Space.
