Griffin, Larry: Result of Redevelopment
Larry Griffin: I was young when it happened, but a lot of folks referred to it as “Negro removal” versus “Redevelopment”. There were promises made that people would come back, but nobody really believed it. It was the beginning of the demise or the end of the African American community as a real political power in this town. The percentages went down immensely, and it never really recovered.
