Special Feature


The following paragraphs are centered in the realities of life in a hyper-segregated city that moves to displace, marginalize and isolate certain members of its population while making space for new investments in housing and other infrastructure. The story is layered and multi-pronged, while deeply imbued in the politics of race, class, and government. Fortunately for some members of the city, the struggle for the basic needs of housing, education and quality of life has not ended. Instead, a public awakening has begun to ignite city members to work in unison to change the current condition.
