The phrase “cappuccino city” refers to previously low-income, minority neighborhoods that are experiencing major demographic shifts caused by the influx of mid-to-upper income, white millennials. It’s happening in the Bronx in New York City, in Chicago’s Bronzeville neighborhood, and in the Shaw area of Washington, D.C. Shaw is the neighborhood at the center of Derek Hyra’s new book, “Race, Class, and Politics in the Cappuccino City.”

“What we've seen is there's been a real movement in the last ten years of gentrification coming to southern cities," Hyra said. "So it went from D.C. to Durham to Atlanta. We see Nashville has had a huge wave of gentrification, and we see that it's moving further south. So a place like Memphis is likely going to be a place where gentrification occurs.”
