The Listening Post Asks: How Can Neighborhoods Develop Without Displacing Black-Owned Businesses?

May 30, 2017

Earlier this month, Ooh Poo Pah Doo Bar on Orleans Avenue in the Treme was shut down.

Ooh Poo Pah Doo bar was black owned. This made us think about which black owned businesses people in New Orleans frequent on a regular basis. We also got to thinking about how Treme and other neighborhoods can develop without displacing black residents and black-owned businesses. Interviews about the subject and our survey results are featured in our monthly radio segment.

The Listening Post project seeks to establish a two-way conversation with the citizens of New Orleans. Participants can both contribute thoughts and commentary about important issues in their neighborhoods, and also receive news and information important to local communities.
