Kamal Al-Solaylee: In Defence of Ghettos

Gentrification has reframed the way we think about ghettos. They’re no longer just in inner cities. As real estate booms, entire communities are being pushed out of city cores and into the margins, says Kamal Al-Solaylee, director and professor at the University of British Columbia’s School of Journalism, Writing, and Media.


Kamal Al-Solaylee spoke at The Walrus Talks Cities of Migration in Surrey, British Columbia, on September 29, 2016.
