 In Shaw (now with more gentrification): Brixton, UK and Shaw, DC
Residents who don't fit in with recent conformity (and Brixton’s current fashionability is a form of conformism) can sometimes feel crushed by the demands of professionals who’ve read in a magazine that Brixton is hip, moved in recently and within months want everything their way.
My Brixton, particularly Brixton circa 1993, which was in between the 1991 riot and the 1995 riot, was an escape from the Central London areas I worked in for a Summer.
Brixton's current fashionability was largely built on the backs of black people and on the backs of poorer people.

When I saw it this morning I put my SIM card in and started playing around with it, but I could tell that the desire to keep it was wearing thin, and giving in to the need to give it back to its rightful owner.

 Alex Wheatle, author of 'Brixton Rock', 'East Of Acre Lane, 'The Seven Sisters'
Like other writers who offer a fully realised fictional world, much of the pleasure of Wheatle's Brixton lies in its lovingly rendered detail, its chaotic street denizens milling around outside the undeground station, the piled yam and dasheen in the market, the exact route of the 109 bus.
All you had to do was walk towards the sound of the bass.' In Wheatle's early eighties Brixton, reggae music is the unifying heartbeat of a community, the sound of how it knows itself, no matter how fractured its individual lives.
On the other hand, the advent of guns and crack cocaine has made Brixton's criminal subculture more overt, brutal and deadly than ever it was in 1981.
