Dr. Elizabeth A. Herbin-Triant Discusses the Politics of Residential Segregation

Please join us for Dr. Elizabeth A. Herbin-Triant's talk about her new book: "Threatening Property: Race, Class, and Campaigns to Legislate Jim Crow Neighborhoods" (Columbia University Press, 2019). Focusing on North Carolina, Threatening Property explores the politics of residential segregation. It investigates who wanted neighborhoods to be segregated by race, how these people brought about their vision, and why segregation has persisted even after segregationist policies were ended.
