We continue our housing journey with this second installment exploring the persistent segregation of U.S. neighborhoods.
The lines of racial segregation in most metropolitan areas in the United States are as stark today as at any point since Reconstruction. The promise of the 1968 Fair Housing Act remains unfulfilled, as the legacy of persistent segregation continues to reproduce profound racialized economic, environmental, health inequalities.
In this lecture and discussion, our panelists will use the Hampton Roads region of Virginia as a case study to interrogate the connections between discriminatory housing policies and practices in our nation’s recent past and the landscapes of inequality that we inhabit today. In the context of climate change, they will argue that to avoid continuing to cement into our future the racially unjust landscapes of the present and not-so-distant past, we must envision and enact policies and practices with the explicit goal of achieving racially and social just urban climate resiliency.
