SE Raleigh - also called Olde East Raleigh - South Park - is one of the eight historic African American neighborhoods in Raleigh, NC. The neighborhood is currently in the process of being gentrified. Long-term residents can no longer afford to pay the rising property taxes or rent and are forced to sell their houses and move away. Younger, more affluent and predominantly white people buy the houses, renovate them and significantly change the face of the neighborhood. These images were taken during the Artspace Regional Emerging Artist Residency in 2015.
