Longtime jazz pianist Charles Boles, 86, who over the years played with the likes of B.B. King and Etta James, is a lifetime Detroiter.
He has lived in the Jeffersonian Apartments for 12 years, but says that a new owner recently took over and rent hikes are on the way. In a video by Business Insider on gentrification in Detroit, he says:
"It's the relocation of all the older citizens. I don't want to make it a race thing, but it is."
Business Insider also talks to a Cass Corridor resident worried about being pushed out, and to Mayor Mike Duggan.
