Priced Out

Described Video:
Exploring the complexities and contradictions of gentrification, Priced Out is a heartbreaking vision of the history of housing discrimination in one of the whitest cities, and the personal impact it has had on residents. In the late 1990s, Nikki Williams, a single mother living in the only ,ghetto, in Portland, Oregon, embraced the idea of gentrification. At that time, her black neighborhood was dominated by abandoned buildings and fear of drug dealers. Fifteen years later, Nikki was one of the last black residents on her block, as high-end restaurants and throngs of young white newcomers came to dominate the area. While some black residents said good riddance to the old neighborhood, others felt betrayed by city officials who had promised revitalization without displacement.
