The Undervalued Assets Of Black Communities

Racial zoning, exploitative mortgage rates, white flight — these are just some of the reasons why one part of a city flourishes and another fails. Andre M. Perry, a fellow in the Metropolitan Policy Program at the Brookings Institution, joins host Krys Boyd to talk about his deep-dive into six black-majority cities to find out why property is undervalued and what residents should demand for their futures. His book is “Know Your Price: Valuing Black Lives and Property in America’s Black Cities.”
