Red Hot City: Housing, Race, and Exclusion in Twenty-First Century Atlanta
Location: Online only
Speaker(s): Dan Immergluck
In recent decades, central Atlanta has experienced heavily racialized gentrification, which has pushed low-income people and families of color to distant suburbs far from mass transit, large public hospitals, and other essential services. In Red Hot City: Housing, Race, and Exclusion in Twenty-First Century Atlanta, Dan Immergluck, a professor of Urban Studies at Georgia State University, tracks these racial and economic shifts and discusses the politics and policies that produced them. In this talk, Immergluck will discuss these changes and the lessons they offer for planners and policymakers not only in Atlanta but in other rapidly growing, formerly low-cost locales.
