Overview

Anti-black racism is a stark fact in Chicago, illustrated by significant racial inequality in and around contemporary 'global' city. Here Street explains this neo-liberal apartheid and its resulting disparity in terms of persistently and deeply racist societal and institutional practices and policies. Racial Oppression in the Global Metropolis criticizes neoconservative and liberal explanations of the black urban crisis, challenges sharp distinctions between present and 'past' racism, and proposes ideas for challenging urban racism in the 21st century.
