WAOKAM: On-Demand
Friday, March 9th
Social activist Mary Pat Hector, National Youth Director for the National Action Network has been a very vocal opponent of  "the continuing gentrification" of the Westside of Atlanta. Today on Too Much Truth, Derrick Boazman spoke with Hector about her concerns. Gentrification is a general term for the arrival of wealthier people in an existing urban district, a related increase in rents and property values, and changes in the district’s character and culture. Hector also talked about an upcoming rally and discussion about gentrification on March 13 featuring Rev Al Sharpton. In case you missed it here’s a portion of the show.
