Moorpark College Gentrification and White Flight Discussion Post

Question Description

I’m working on a writing discussion question and need a sample draft to help me learn.

1. Define & Discuss

What are “white flight” and “gentrification”? Define each briefly, and offer a concise explanation of how both have racial implications for neighborhoods and communities. 

2. Illustrative Example | Clybourne Park

(B) EXAMPLE: The play, Clybourne Park addresses both white flight and gentrification – both overtly and subtly, or by implication. Find a scene or exchange of dialogue in the play that refers to or explores the dynamics or consequences of either of these — white flight or gentrification — and briefly discuss the example you chose. Include a short quoted excerpt if possible, (with the page number).
