Using qualitative data, including extensive interview material and ethnographic research, to explore the experiences and ideas of African Americans as they confront and construct gentrification, this book contextualizes Black Washingtonians' perspectives on belonging and attachment during a marked period of urban restructuring and demographic change in the nation's capital. African Americans and Gentrification in Washington, D.C. sheds light on social hierarchies and standpoints unfolding over time to present a portrait of a heterogeneous African American population, wherein members define their identity and culture as informed by their knowledge of the impact of injustice on the urban landscape. Combining these findings with analyses from institutional, statistical, and scholarly reports on wealth inequality, shortages in affordable housing, rates of unemployment, and other key topics, the author contends that gentrification seizes upon and fosters uneven development, vulnerability and alienation and also contributes to classed and racialized tensions in affected communities. This book will appeal to social scientists working in the areas of urban studies and urban ethnography, as well as activists, policymakers and readers of contemporary works in the field of African American studies. African Americans and Gentrification in Washington, D.C. will also invigorate discussions of neoliberalism, critical whiteness studies and race relations in the 21st Century and contribute to considerations of the ways in which histories, structural inequalities, and viewpoints are connected in U.S. cities today.
