Order DescriptionThis essay is about the changing nature of the city, specifically the rise of the American ghetto and how gentrification most recently is changing it.

A) Explain in depth how the ghetto was formed, how Blacks were kept in the ghetto, and how by the 1970s ghettos came to be places of extreme concentration of social isolation of Blacks as well as having extreme concentration of poverty.

B) Drawing on the readings, show how changes in economic structures and in the housing market (gentrification) are working to reshape the ghetto in the city since the late 1970s. (Note: This should comprise *at least half* the length of the total essay.)
