Fight the Power: Redressing Displacement and Building a Just City for Black Lives in Vancouver

Past and present planning practices impacting Black people in Canada are brought into focus in this master's project that traces Hogan's Alley, a Black community that existed in Vancouver's Strathcona neighbourhood and that was displaced through a series of racially-motivated decisions spanning decades. The project documents the efforts made by the contemporary Black community to seek redress for the past displacement, and how the City of Vancouver reacted to those efforts.
