Longtime Residents Fight Illegal Foreclosures in Gentrified Neighborhood
In Detroit, a recent study found that one in four Detroit properties have been subject to property tax foreclosure between 2011 and 2015 — many of which may have been illegal. As downtown Detroit becomes increasingly gentrified, thousands of the city’s longtime residents — mostly African-American families — have lost their homes to foreclosure. For more, we speak with Bernadette Atuahene, a professor at Chicago-Kent College of Law at the Illinois Institute of Technology. She co-authored the study "Stategraft."
