In The Black Butterfly: The Harmful Politics of Race and Space in America, Lawrence T. Brown reveals that ongoing historical trauma caused by a combination of policies, practices, systems, and budgets is at the root of uprisings and crises in hyper-segregated cities around the country. Putting Baltimore under a microscope, Brown looks closely at the causes of segregation, many of which exist in current legislation and regulatory policy despite the common belief that overtly racist policies are a thing of the past. Join your colleagues for a peer discussion about the role of our sector in this call to action to promote racial equity, end redlining, and reverse the damaging health- and wealth-related effects of segregation.
