Washington DC, Gentrification, Demographics and Revitalization - After a 5-day trip to the nation's capital for a series of lectures and workshops, I have some very urgent perspectives that I feel must be shared regard the viability of the black communities in the city. Today we examine a broad set of factors which forecast the future for the residents of black neighborhoods. We examine the changing demographics of the city wherein the black majority population has disappeared, the history of migration to the city from a century ago, the impact of gentrification with the ethnic and class rivalries which have emerged in the past 3 decades. As well we look at various other aspects of what has been going on such as DC's record high abortion rate among Blacks, the many schools which have closed due to shrinking student populations, where old residents are migrating to, as well as the roll of HBCU's in what might be a viable master plan to halt or reverse the rapid transfer of this valuable real estate. What was once known as Chocolate City is now being referred to as Cappuccino City. There is great reason for us to change this. (LIBMP3-3856)
