In The Black Side of the River, sociolinguist Jessi Grieser draws on ten years of interviews with dozens of residents of Anacostia-a historically Black neighborhood in Washington, DC-to explore the impact of urban change on Black culture, identity, and language. Grieser's work is a call to center Black lived experiences in urban research.

Jessi Grieser is an assistant professor of rhetoric, writing, and linguistics at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. She is a sociolinguist who specializes in discourse analysis, geosemiotics, and sociophonetics.
