Show notes

The term Gentrification was coined in the 1960s by British sociologist Ruth Glass to describe the influx of wealthier residents into working-class communities in London. Since then, it's always borne a negative connotation, associated with the displacement of low-income, minority, and immigrant communities within cities. But there is more to gentrification than the facade of trendy coffee shops and hipsters that usually take the blame for the succession of neighborhoods. Today, we are joined by Leslie Kern author of The Feminist City, and recently published Gentrification Is Inevitable and Other Lies, to talk about the greater forces at play that lead to the economic and social transformation of neighborhoods.
