White Space, Black Hood: Segregation in the Age of Inequality

/ Webinar

Hosted By:
The Brennan Center for Justice

Historical housing discrimination has created a modern-day caste system in which neighborhood often determines opportunity. The mechanics of anti-Black housing segregation have evolved from the blatant redlining of the 1900s to affordable housing resistance, public transportation underinvestment, and the overpolicing of Black communities. Join the Brennan Center’s Theodore R. Johnson for a conversation with Sheryll Cashin, author of White Space, Black Hood: Opportunity Hoarding and Segregation in the Age of Inequality, on how we got here and what it will take to end this residential caste system.
