Book Discussion: Family Properties with author Beryl Satter


The “promised land” for thousands of Southern blacks, postwar Chicago quickly became the most segregated city in the North, the site of the nation’s worst ghettos and the target of Martin Luther King Jr.'s first campaign beyond the South. In her powerful book, Family Properties, Beryl Satter identifies the true cause of the city’s slums: widespread and institutionalized systems of legal and financial exploitation.
