College Hall Room 200
“Race for Profit: How Banks and the Real Estate Industry Undermined Black Homeownership”

We are proud to announce Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, Assistant Professor of African American Studies, Princeton University, to be our next Annual Public Lecturer. She will draw from her upcoming book, Race for Profit: How Banks and the Real Estate Industry Undermined Black Homeownership, coming out in October from University of North Carolina Press.

Race for Profit uncovers how exploitative real estate practices continued well after housing discrimination was banned. The same racist structures and individuals remained intact after redlining’s end, and close relationships between regulators and the industry created incentives to ignore improprieties.

The lecture is free and open to the public. Read more here.
