The Road to Resegregation: Northern California and the Failure of Politics

Alex Schafran, Lecturer in Urban Geography, University of Leeds
 

Alex SchafranSegregation of communities of color has been one of the dominant features of American history. California is often seen as an exception in recent decades—a highly diverse state in which tolerance has grown in parallel with progressive politics. 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.
