For this special mid week podcast release, we are presenting a conversation with three defendants who are in an ongoing legal battle with the city of Asheville. This group of 15 people, three of whom are speaking today, are facing felony littering charges in connection with a demonstration in December of 2021 against a targeted camp sweep in a local park adjacent to the downtown district. For this interview, we will talk about their case, the issue of the mistreatment of houseless people generally, camp sweeps and what they mean specifically, the nationwide crackdown on mutual aid, their own activisms, and how to keep in touch with this situation and support the 15 defendants. You can read all about their case and keep up with this ongoing situation at avlsolidarity.noblogs.org. To donate to these folks you can venmo @AVLdefendantfund. The defendants would also like to plug the venmos of another AVL based mutual aid group Asheville Survival Program which is @AVLsurvival, and the local Anarchist Black Cross chapter Blue Ridge ABC and their venmo is @BlueRidgeABC.
Black folks are often told homeownership and real estate are the royal road to wealth creation and stability. Government policies like the mortgage interest tax deduction are held up a "hidden secret" white people use to game the systems. Some Black people hold homeownership as "beating 'them' at their own game" and using the "masters tools " to gain power. However, a new book raises questions as the whether this is actually the case. We anaylize "The Whiteness of Wealth" by Dorothy A. Brown - which argues homeownership fails to fulfill its promise to stabilize Black communities and build wealth for Black families. We'll be speaking on: gentrification, the dangers of increased property tax bills, complicating narratives of housing price appreciation as inherently good and concrete steps communities can take to address housing needs in their community without uncritically accepting "Buy the Block" mythology.

How did a group of friends singing Beatles songs turn into white women insisting on singing negro spirituals and Civil Rights songs? Tania's sister Gina shares an outrageous story about a singing group that descended into a pit of casual racism and micro-aggressions for the record books. How did Gina handle it? Why does stuff like this keep happening? What do we need white women to do when it's happening? A classic example of casual racism in a social setting with all the usual players. Gentrification and opportunity hoarding is discussed too. This is a must listen episode; two Black women honestly talking about experiencing the Wild Wild West of "best intentions" gone wrong. Celebrate Gina speaking her truth in the moment and in this conversation. And learn the urgent importance of tasty chips and guacamole.

Gentrification has impacted many people living in cities as under-invested neighborhoods have been transformed into higher wealth areas. As the cost of living increases, gentrification often leads to the displacement of longtime residents who can no longer afford to live in these areas. Local jurisdictions can take steps to monitor these changes and implement policies and processes that minimize negative impacts to residents. In this episode we talk with Ed Goetz, professor of urban and regional planning at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs, director of Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA) at the University of Minnesota, and coauthor of The Diversity of Gentrification report, which looks at gentrification in Minneapolis and St. Paul over 15 years and provides recommended policy approaches to shift narratives.
