Quality-of-life metrics assessing the state of African-American northeast Omaha paint a stark picture. Pockets experience some of America's worst poverty and gun violence. Disparities contradict Omaha's high best-place-to-live rankings.

Riot-scarred landscapes remain untouched decades later. Urban renewal brought distrust and dislocation. Combined with education, employment, income, home-business ownership gaps,...
