Slated for Demolition

Title

Slated for Demolition

Description

This image represents the men and women who were often displaced due to city urban renewal programs. In the East Raleigh/South Park neighborhoods, black citizens were often confined to pre-approved segregated neighborhoods. With few housing options for black families, Southeast Raleigh was overcrowded and underdeveloped. Raleigh in the late 1960s and early 1970s suffered an extreme housing crisis.
