How can planners, advocates, public officials and urbanists advance the cause of racial justice?
Join us for a conversation with Andre M. Perry. Dr. Perry is a fellow in the Metropolitan Policy Program at Brookings, a scholar-in-residence at American University, and a columnist for the Hechinger Report. He is the author of the new book Know Your Price: Valuing Black Lives and Property in America’s Black Cities, which is currently available wherever books are sold. A nationally known and respected commentator on race, structural inequality, and education, Perry is a regular contributor to MSNBC and has been published by The New York Times, The Nation, The Washington Post, TheRoot.com and CNN.com. Perry has also made appearances on CNN, PBS, National Public Radio, NBC, and ABC. His research focuses on race and structural inequality, education, and economic inclusion.
This is part of our “Making Urbanism Antiracist” speaker series; an ongoing conversation on how housing and transit activists must advance racial equity.
