Ron Hudson grew up in Northeast D.C. After a turbulent youth, he was incarcerated for more than 15 years. Now, he's come back home a changed man. However, his home is also changed.
The area is being injected with money and new faces. In the 1990s, the neighborhood had an 82% black, non-Hispanic population. In 2010, it was 61% black, non-Hispanic. Since 2000, violent crimes have dropped from 25 to 16 per 1,000 people in the area.
Gentrification is very real in Ron's neighborhood, but change is something that he's been able to adapt to.
