The Hill District in Pittsburgh is a historic African American community and was a center for jazz. One of the closest residential neighborhoods to “Dahntahn”, it was the center of the African American community until WW1. In the 1950s, a vast swath of the neighborhood was seized for redevelopment, with relocation of over 8000 residents, which led to a drastic economic decline as the neighborhood was severed from the rest of the city.
The Hill District is the setting for 9 out of 10 plays in the playwright August Wilson’s Pittsburgh Cycle and was the setting for the TV show Hill Street Blues.
