Gentrification: A Web Reader

20160205_181033This weekend I will be participating (read: opening my big mouth!) on a panel about gentrification at Ro2 Gallery as part of the closing exhibition of Giovanni Valderas’ Forged Utopia exhibition at the MAC. Click for more information about Giovanni’s fantastic (and you know I rarely call anything in Dallas fantastic), timely, and relevant exhibition.

Accordingly, this week’s reading list is a list of gentrification resources that I’ve been compiling over the past year, with the goal of building connectivity between national networks and local knowledges about the ways in which communities of color are displaced and resist displacement. Please comment with thoughts and additional resources.
