Urban Shifts: Racial Capitalism in the Queen City

How does gentrification in one neighborhood influence race and class relations in other, non-adjacent neighborhoods? My second book answers this question and addresses the intersection of various macro-level processes, including gentrification, Latinx immigration, and economic divestment in working-class communities. I have conducted a comparison study of two Cincinnati neighborhoods to understand how gentrification and immigration drive processes of neighborhood change. One neighborhood, Riverside, is predominantly white and the other, Carthage, is multiracial (white, Black, and Latinx residents). Drawing on 117 interviews with residents across both neighborhoods, my book examines cross-race and cross-class boundary construction and the macro-level processes that shape these patterns.
