This 10 a.m. CDT program from the Chicago Tribune Printers Row Lit Fest was held on the Books and Media Stage in the Lake Room of University Center. Included in program ID 287574-1.
Beryl Satter talked about her book Family Properties: Race, Real Estate, and the Exploitation of Black Urban America (Metropolitan Books; March 17, 2009). Professor Satter drew upon the records of her late father, Chicago attorney Mark Satter, to document the extent to which the decline of black neighborhoods into slums was caused by a widespread scheme of discrimination, greed, and the the racially biased credit policies of the nation’s banking industry rather than the absence of African-American resources. She was interviewed by Eric Arnesen before responding to questions from members of the audience.
