The fillmore district

The Fillmore District


Economy in the fillmore

Economy in the Fillmore

In the 1970’s the Fillmore District was wiped out by an urban redevelopment policy. This “new” development was supposed to help the lower district of the Fillmore, but instead it destroyed it. About 460 black businesses were destroyed and about 4,000 African American families moved out. Technically, they were put out so that residential projects could be built where they once resided. This left many of the African American families to migrate out of the city to larger homes, to the Bayview Hunter’s Point area and across the bay.
