dc.description.abstract Segregation and racism have systematically existed in the United States for hundreds of years. Today, though there have been strides taken in alleviating these inequalities, they manifest themselves in new ways. In Strawberry Mansion, Philadelphia, African Americans are undergoing modern day segregation that arrived in unexpected ways. Through the introduction of charter schools and increased interest in educational advancement from outsiders, Strawberry Mansion is experiencing gentrification. While rent prices are increasing and leaving the impoverished at risk of becoming homeless, school attendance is dropping and local public schools are in threat of being shut down. This thesis works to reveal the underlying factors at play that had led to the harsh displacement of families, and neglect of children’s ability to access education.
