Confirmed Presenter

Dr. Beryl Satter, Faculty Professor American Studies and History Rutgers University


Family Properties: Race, Real Estate, and the Exploitation of Black Urban America a monumental work of history, documenting accounts of racism and real estate, politics and finance, that forever changed our understanding of the forces that transformed urban America

Dr. Satter's tells her family story on urban history, detailing a landmark investigation of racial segregation and urban decay in Chicago -- and cities across the nation

The "promised land" for thousands of Southern Blacks, postwar Chicago quickly became the most segregated city in the North, the site of the nation's worst ghettos and the target of Martin Luther King Jr.'s first campaign beyond the South. In her powerful book,

Beryl Satter identifies the true causes of the city's Black slums and the ruin of urban neighborhoods throughout the country: not, as some have argued, Black pathology, the culture of poverty, or White flight, but a widespread and institutionalized system of legal and financial exploitation.

In Satter's riveting account of a city in crisis, unscrupulous lawyers, slumlords, and speculators are pitched against religious reformers, community organizers, and an impassioned attorney who launched a crusade against the profiteers—the author's father, Mark J. Satter.

Satter shows the interlocking forces at work in their oppression: the discriminatory practices of the banking industry; the federal policies that created the country's shameful "dual housing market"; the economic anxieties that fueled White violence; and the tempting profits of nearly 4 billion dollars made by preying on the city's most vulnerable population.
