The African American Intellectual History Society has published a new essay from Professor Paige Glotzer in their award-winning blog, Black Perspectives. The essay, “Redlining, Predatory Inclusion, and Housing Segregation” was created as part of a roundtable on Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor’s book Race for Profit: How Banks and the Real Estate Industry Undermined Black Homeownership.
The full essay is available on the Black Perspectives blog at African American Intellectual History Society.
Paige Glotzer is an Assistant Professor and holds the John W. and Jeanne M. Rowe Chair in the History of American Politics, Institutions, and Political Economy here at UW-Madison. Her research focuses on the history of housing segregation in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and her first book How the Suburbs Were Segregated: Developers and the Business of Exclusionary Housing, 1890-1960 was published by Columbia University Press in April 2020.
