Urban Development: From Reconstruction to Gentrification

This Olio will cover the historical flashpoints of urban ‘development’ in the U.S. from the rural outmigration from the South after the end of Reconstruction, to the urban displacement wrought by gentrification. Between these two periods, we see changes in our food production, homeownership, and the state’s role in economic development--all of which created outcomes that we are still struggling to deal with today. Let's talk about it.
