The Road to Resegregation: Northern California and the Failure of Politics
Alex Schafran, Lecturer in Urban Geography, University of Leeds
Segregation of communities of color has been one of the dominant features of American history.

Yet economic and political forces threaten a new segregation even here. What will it take to reverse this trend? Join us on Wed Jan 9, 12:10-1 to hear from Alex Schafran, author of the new U.C Press book The Road to Resegregation.
