Overview

"Share an insider's view of how race and politics impact the distribution of city services and how the promises of elected African Americans and liberal whites to poor communities are often broken. This book follows the trail of over $247 million allocated to the city of Milwaukee from 1975 to 1997. You'll learn where money designated to address problems of urban blight and poverty really went." Through interviews, participant observation, trace analysis, and a careful review of public records, Race, Politics, and Community Development Funding follows that money and reveals the errors of those who argued that an increase in the number of black elected officials and community activists would result in more resources for low-income areas. Helpful charts, tables, and graphs illustrate the flow of federal dollars.
