On this episode of Funky Politics we have Roshun Austin, the president of the Works Inc. located in Memphis, TN. Founded in 1998, the Works has served the housing community development needs of the South Memphis community.
We discuss today the topic of gentrification in the African-American neighborhoods here in Memphis. Roshun Austin and the crew challenges the notion of gentrification and whether or not the communities in Memphis are actually being gentrified or culturally displaced.
