Unequal City: Race, Schools, and Perceptions of Injustice

Thursday, October 19, 2017 at 1:25pm to 2:40pm

Klarman Hall, KG70 (Rhodes-Rawlings Auditorium)
232 East Ave, Ithaca, NY 14853

Carla Shedd (Urban Education, City University of New York)

This speaker is part of a lecture series for the class "Controversies About Inequality."

About the book: "Chicago has long struggled with racial residential segregation, high rates of poverty, and deepening class stratification, and it can be a challenging place for adolescents to grow up. Unequal City examines the ways in which Chicago’s most vulnerable residents navigate their neighborhoods, life opportunities, and encounters with the law. In this pioneering analysis of the intersection of race, place, and opportunity, sociologist and criminal justice expert Carla Shedd illuminates how schools either reinforce or ameliorate the social inequalities that shape the worlds of these adolescents."
