There is a saying in Nashville’s James Cayce Homes: “Get some gone.”
Three simple words that describe the urge, the mission, to move out and start anew, far away from the city’s largest public housing project.
Some do leave. But it's not easy, especially with the city's rising cost of rent. "I mean, half of us, we can't afford to move up out of here. Get some gone," says Big Man, a Cayce resident since 1999.
