The Forecasting Of The Gentrification Of Harlem

The following excerpt comes from a book that was written in the 1960s. The book discusses the lives of African-American in America. It’s ironic how a statement made in the ‘60s is so apropos to 2012.

“They are raising the rents so high, like that, with a job, the menial jobs that we have or get, the money we will receive- we won’t be able to pay rent! So where we going to go? They are pushing us further, and further, an further- out of Harlem.” -From, “Dark Ghetto: Dilemmas of Social Power” By: Kenneth B. Clark
