Market-based Predatory Development: Race, Class, and the Underdevelopment of Black Neighborhoods in the U.S.

“Market-based Predatory Development: Race, Class, and the Underdevelopment of Black Neighborhoods in the U.S.”

Wednesday, November 18, 2020
6 pm – 7:30 pm

This lecture explores the role of land valorization in the underdevelopment of Black neighborhoods. It argues that the city-building process constructs a duality consisting of high-value developed White neighborhoods and low-value underdeveloped Black neighborhoods. Moreover, these low-value underdeveloped Black neighborhoods are also the site of predatory forms of development.
