I think this would make a good topic for an advanced Spanish class, or a heritage speakers’ class. It could work in a high school ESL or Social Justice class, as well. I see gentrification happening currently in Latino and African American neighborhoods of Denver.

Here is a video from Mexico City.

  1. Thanks for the list of resources! I actually do teach about this w/ my heritage students (gentrification of Latino communities). Boy does it get them talking, and it really gets is digging into history. Looking forward to searching through what you’ve got here to see what is happening elsewhere.
