The story of Africans in America has been one of resilience, creativity, reinvention and accomplishment in the face of tremendous obstacles. This workshop will highlight some of the amazing work being done to harness and build upon this legacy in the face of rapid displacement in the Central District. We will generate ideas for survival in the midst of existing real estate market forces. #HackingGentrification will be a two-way, generative conversation and work session - so bring your notepads, tablets and thinking caps!
