Know Your Price: Valuing Black Lives and Property in America’s Black Cities – A conversation with author Andre Perry
August 4, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDT
Join America Walks for a conversation with Andre M. Perry about his book Know Your Price: Valuing Black Lives and Property in America’s Black Cities. Dr. Perry gives an overview of five Black Majority cities and provides detailed analysis of how the assets and strengths of these places have been devalued. The book is both research and memoir. As we look for ways to address structural racism in community design, knowing and valuing the strengths and assets of black communities is essential. Dr. Perry provides a frame for doing just that. In this conversation, Dr. Perry will outline the multiple assets present in black communities and give direction on how to value them. Following his presentation, he will answer questions from the moderators and the attendees. Register
