RESTORING VALUE TO BLACK COMMUNITIES

Dr. Andre Perry, senior fellow at the Brookings Metropolitan Policy Program and author of Know Your Price: Valuing Lives and Property in America’s Black Cities will show the cost of structural racism on Black-majority neighborhoods. Housing and business devaluation are costing residents of Black-majority neighborhoods billions of dollars and thousands of lives. Restoring value to Black communities will require not only a serious dialogue and examination into wealth and power, but also a deliberate, forward-looking effort to hold ourselves accountable for anti-Black policies and practices.
