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.

Praise for the book:

"In The Black Side of the River, Jessi Grieser combines careful sociolinguistic analysis with impressive argumentation about the nature of race and place in urban America, all conveyed in a vivid, accessible style."Ben Zimmer, language columnist for the Wall Street Journal

"This book may well establish place identity, and its intersections with race and class, as the most promising perspective from which to understand sociolinguistic variation in many communities."John R. Rickford, Stanford University, coauthor of Spoken Soul: The Story of Black English and author of Variation, Versatility and Change in Sociolinguistics and Creole Studies

"Jessica Grieser weaves a vivid intersectional tapestry of language and life among residents in DC's Anacostia neighborhood."John Baugh, professor of linguistics and African and African American studies, Washington University
