America, like the rest of the world, continues to urbanize. The planning decisions we made in the past haunt us in the broad inequities we experience today. How can we make better decisions for the future? Professor Brian Lowery talks with Mitchell Silver, Commissioner at the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation and Richard Rothstein, the author of The Color of Law. They lift the veil on how city planning decisions have historically been made, discuss how some communities’ have been denied easy access to jobs, safe space for recreation, and how neighborhoods are still segregated to this day.
In this conversation, Professor Brian Lowery will be joined by Peter Gleick, Pacific Institute Co-Founder and Senior Fellow.
