Roving Camera 5-16-19: Do you think Roxbury will continue to be a black neighborhood in the future?

No. It’s gentrifying now. Usually, when that happens, the flavor of the neighborhood changes. It doesn’t matter whether it’s Roxbury, South Boston or the South End. — Deborah Darby, State Worker, Roxbury
It should be. It will probably be mixed, but I don’t want to see black people move out. — Gary Daniel Cooper, Disabled, Dorchester
Definitely not. It’s already gone. — Lalita Payne, Customer Service Associate, Roxbury
I think it will be mixed. There are all kinds of people moving in. — James Turner, Retired, Mattapan
I doubt it. White people wanted to move back here 20-to-30 years ago. — Ella Pensong, Retired, Brigham Circle
Roxbury is no longer a black neighborhood. It went from white to black and now it’s going back to white again. — James Harrison, Hair Designer, Roxbury
