Unequal: Cities, Suburbs, and the Unfinished Struggle for Racial Justice with Thomas Sugrue
Thomas J. Sugrue, professor of social and cultural analysis and history; director of The Cities Collaborative at NYU; and director of the Metropolitan Studies Program, New York University, presents the lecture, "Less Separate, Still Unequal: Cities, Suburbs, and the Unfinished Struggle for Racial Justice," at 6:00 p.m. via Zoom as part of the Rice Architecture Fall 2020 Lecture Series.

The crises of 2020 have turned an international spotlight on ongoing inequalities in metropolitan America. In this sweeping overview of race and inequality in American cities and suburbs, Sugrue turns attention to the spatial origins of racial inequality, bridging the urban past with our troubled present. He discusses what has changed for the better and what has remained unaddressed over the half century since the urban uprisings and civil rights struggles of the 1960s and how urban activists, policymakers, and planners can chart a direction forward.
