In Race, Class, and Politics in the Cappuccino City, author Derek Hyra offers an in-depth portrait of a rapidly gentrifying neighborhood in which long-time black residents are joined, and variously displaced, by an influx of young, white professionals. This return to the cities that earlier generations fled is creating what he calls “cappuccino cities”: essentially the same ingredients as a cup of coffee with milk, but more “upscale” and thus more expensive. Join for this conversation with an influential scholar of neighborhood change, race and urban politics. In partnership with the Institute for Metropolitan Studies at San Jose State University.
