Lecture Description

This talk examines the rise and fall of the federal government’s first efforts to transform low-income Black renters into low-income Black homeowners. I examine the consequences of the partnerships between federal agencies and private funders in making housing available and their impact in Black neighborhoods in the aftermath of the Black rebellions of the 1960s.
