Sawyer Seminar Series: Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor - ‘Unsophisticated Buyers’: Homeownership and the end of the Urban Crisis in the 1970s”
by Rebecca Bennitt published Jan 29, 2018 last modified Jan 29, 2018 11:35 AM
At the end of the 1960s, the federal government officially ended its long history of excluding African Americans from policies designed to encourage homeownership. In the wake of urban uprising and in response to growing Black income, federal officials partnered with private institutions connected to the real estate industry to promote homeownership in cities across the country. These new policies did not constitute “big government” instead they opened a new era of “partnership” between capital and the state in the provision of low-income housing. The new approach to resolving the longstanding issue of the dearth of safe and sound urban housing raised critical questions about market based solutions in resolving issues rooted in economic and racial inequality. The focus on the resolution of “redlining” and other means of exclusion have posited “inclusion” as the solution, but without attending to the cause of exclusion in the first place—racial discrimination—would “inclusion” alone resolve the imprint of discrimination on the real estate market? This talk engages those and other questions pertaining to whether public-private partnerships are a viable solution to the chronic housing crisis in the United States.
