In 1990, 43 percent of Oakland residents were African-American. In 2011, black people made up only about a quarter of the city’s population. A new report from tenant advocacy organization Causa Justa and the Alameda County Public Health Department traces the history of gentrification in Oakland and the health consequences of displacement. We discuss a changing Oakland and what it means for minority and low-income residents.
