Won't You Be My Neighbor? Race, Class, and Residence in Los Angeles

Won't You Be My Neighbor? Race, Class, and Residence in Los Angeles

When the Fair Housing Act became law in 1968, residential segregation had already become entrenched. In the 40 years since the act was passed, these segregated housing patterns have continued through government decisions and private actions. Exploring race from a spatial perspective while paying particular attention to social justice concerns, scholars and community activists George Lipsitz (professor of black studies at UCSB), Marqueece Harris-Dawson (executive director of Community Coalition), Charlotte Brimmer (project manager, Community Redevelopment Agency/LA) and Dale Brockman Davis (artist) will consider different sites where race and space have been intermeshed in Los Angeles. This panel will be moderated by Naima J. Keith (curatorial fellow at Hammer Museum).
