The neighborhood of Dixwell located in New Haven, Connecticut stands in stark contrast from its surroundings. Nearby, Yale University’s campus offers a look into the privilege that can be found in New Haven. Dixwell, on the other hand, is a neighborhood often ignored by the privileged because of its economic challenges. In the early years of the nineteenth century, Dixwood was an art and music hub, specifically focusing on jazz. Now, with the help of local entrepreneurs, the predominately African-American neighborhood is returning to its artistic roots.
