Property ownership eludes Black Americans more than any other racial group. NPR’s Ailsa Chang and Jonaki Mehta examine why. They tell the story of LA’s Sugar Hill neighborhood, a once-vibrant black community that was demolished to make way for the Santa Monica Freeway.
Their story is part of NPR’s special series We Hold These Truths.
