Where Have all the Towers Gone? Race, Housing, and Redevelopment in American...

Date: 03/09/2011

Time: 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Location: Humphrey Center Humphrey School of Public Affairs

Cost: Free

Description:

As a big-city mayor, U.S. Senator, and Vice President Hubert Humphrey knew well the patterns of racial segregation and discrimination that shaped American cities. For many years, the United States has pursued an anti-poverty strategy that acknowledges the damaging effects of segregation, attempts to reduce intense concentrations of poverty, and focuses on releasing families from the segregated, high-poverty environments. Professor Ed Goetz will discuss how progressive concerns about segregation and the life chances of the poor evolved into programs and policies that forcibly displace and disrupt the lives of hundreds of thousands in a discussion on March 9, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Humphrey Center. The event is free and open to the public, and RSVPs are required at http://towersgone.eventbrite.com/.
