This a great documentary and very accurate. I am a black person raised in this neighborhood in Columbus, Ohio during the time this documentary was shot. I know a few people featured in the film. I believe this film needs to be spread to more audiences especially in light what is happening in Brooklyn these days. I feel like I've been on both sides of the gentrification issue.

Interesting, well-made doc about the culture clashes, economic and social issues involved in gentrification. There are some good guys and bad guys, but most people fall somewhere in the middle, wanting what's best for themselves without wanting to hurt others. As a gay, white man I was particularly interested in hearing what the black residents had to say. It seemed quite honest.

This is very provacative: white gays versus black home owners. Its hard to pick a winner. I sure am glad I don't live in Columbus, Ohio.
