Rats, Riots and Revolution: Black Housing in the 1960s

By Keeanga Taylor

Through exacting research and urgent prose, Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor demonstrates the way in which racism, redlining, and urban exploitation were not just expressions of white prejudice or generic anti-black attitudes, rather they were demonstrations of a "political economy of residential segregation."

Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor is a doctoral candidate in the department of African American Studies at Northwestern University. Taylor has been awarded the prestigious Ford Foundation Dissertation Fellowship. She is active in local housing struggles in Chicago, Illinois.
