New Discussion on The Dream Revisited: Ending Segregation
Launched on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day earlier this year, The Dream Revisited is a “slow debate” on the role that segregation in neighborhoods and schools plays in hindering economic and racial equality. It is presented as part of the Furman Center’s year-long Integration Research Initiative.
The third discussion in The Dream Revisited asks why we haven’t made more progress in reducing segregation. Essays include:
“Why haven’t we made more progress in reducing segregation” by Margery Austin Turner, Senior Vice President for Program Planning and Management at the Urban Institute.
“Economic Segregation of Schools is Key to Discouraging Integration” by Micere Keels, Assistant Professor in the Department of Comparative Human Development at The University of Chicago
“Exclusionary Zoning & Fear: A Developer's Perspective” by Jon Vogel, Vice President of Development at AvalonBay Communities
"How Do We Reconcile Americans' Increasing Interest in Residential Diversity with Persistent Racial Residential Segregation?" by Camille Zubrinsky Charles, Edmund J. and Louis W. Kahn Term Professor in the Social Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania
Join the discussion on Twitter via the hashtag #TheDreamRevisited.
The Dream Revisited will feature a new discussion each month for the entire year. At the conclusion of project in 2014, the debates will be digitally archived. The Dream Revisited is presented as part of the NYU Furman Center's Integration Research Initiative and supported in part by a grant from the Open Society Foundations.
