Community Conversations: Gentrification’s Challenge to History

October 31, 2019 6:00 pm @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Community Conversations- Gentrification's Challenge to History

Join us for a FREE Community Conversation on the topic: Gentrification’s Challenge to the King-Lincoln Cultural History.

Are online social networks and chat groups among recently-arrived residents to the Near East Side a new form of “redlining?” Do they reflect an internet age tactic designed to exclude “the other?” Is it the civic responsibility of community residents, both longtime and new, to learn and preserve the history of the neighborhood they inhabit? To be blunt: Is gentrification the enemy of historic preservation, not only of edifices but also of culture? If these questions intrigue you or affront you, join us for a sure-to-be lively community conversation.

Panel Members: Ed Lentz, Director Emeritus – Columbus Landmarks Foundation; Scott Woods, Streetlight Guild Owner, Creative, Writer, Poet; Chelsea Barnett, Account Executive – Bartha, LTA Board Member, Community Advocate.

Moderators: Dr. Jack Marchbanks, WCBE Jazz Sunday, LTA founding Board Member; Suzan Bradford, Executive Director – Lincoln Theatre.
