Valuing Black Lives, Property & Cities

  • 7026

The deliberate devaluation of Black communities has had very real, far-reaching, and negative economic and social effects. In his new book, "Know Your Price: Valuing Black Lives and Property in America’s Black Cities," noted educator, journalist & scholar Dr. Andre Perry takes readers on a tour of six Black majority cities, including Detroit, whose assets and strengths are undervalued — and provides a new means of determining value. Join us for a virtual conversation with Dr. Perry, fellow in the Metropolitan Policy Program at The Brookings Institution, hosted by Orlando Bailey of BridgeDetroit and Urban Consulate with Detroit guests:

- Anika Goss, Detroit Future City
- Chase L. Cantrell, Building Community Value
- Ekanem N. Obong, neighborhood developer & District Director for Michigan State Senator Erika Geiss (SD6)
