From the 1920s through the 1950s, the center of black social and business life in Charlottesville, Virginia, was the area known as Vinegar Hill. But in 1960, noting the prevalence of aging frame houses and ?substandard? conditions such as outdoor toilets, voters decided that Vinegar Hill would be redeveloped. Charlottesvilles black residents lost a cultural center, largely because they were deprived of a voice in government.

Vinegar Hills displaced residents discuss the loss of homes and businesses and the impact of the project on black life in Charlottesville. The interviews raise questions about motivations behind urban renewal.
