As Crawford put it, the region is “a wrecked ship, and the crew who wrecked it got off a long time ago”. Jefferson County today has the highest percentage of black residents – 85% – of any county in the US and is the fourth poorest, according to the most recent census. All of which means the options for Prospect Hill are limited. …” The Guardian.
