Gentrification in Charleston: Katrina Andry and Daron-Lee Calhoun II in Conversation

Join us for a discussion between artist Katrina Andry and Daron-Lee Calhoun II, Race and Social Justice Initiative Coordinator, Avery Research Center for African American History and Culture, on the topic of gentrification in Charleston. Using “The State of Racial Disparities in Charleston County, South Carolina 2000- 2015”, a report commissioned by the College of Charleston’s Avery Research Center for African American History and Culture, Andry and Calhoun will explore the factors that have created the current-day scenario in the Charleston. Touching on gentrification, property taxes, historic preservation, and education, they will also examine next steps and solutions for Charleston’s inequity, such as raising the minimum wage and creating affordable housing.
