A traveling exhibit that explores the enormous costs of low-income renter eviction.
In 2017, Princeton sociologist and MacArthur “Genius” Matthew Desmond published Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City. Hailed as “wrenching and revelatory” (The Nation), Evicted transformed America’s understanding of poverty and economic exploitation with its “unforgettable scenes of hope and loss.”
Evicted went on to earn multiple awards, including the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction, and many more.
