Hood Closed to Gentrifiers

Residents of the southwest Detroit community of, Mexicantown, placed a sign, “Hood Closed to Gentrifiers” on the corner of W. Grand and Vernor. The sign serves as a notice to let developers and “house hunters” know that gentrification is not welcomed within their community.

Gentrification within inner-city communities across America has taken over not only Black communities, but Hispanic communities as well. Making it highly impossible to continue residing within the very communities that the residents have called home for years.
