College of Charleston Urban Studies Program hosts FAICP June Thomas Manning, PhD

The College of Charleston Urban Studies Program has invited FAICP June Thomas Manning, PhD, to visit the College of Charleston on September 21 at 3:00 PM in the Admissions Auditorium (66 George Street, Charleston, SC) to discuss race and urban planning.

Objectives of this presentation include:

• To review which ethical principles relate to race and social justice, and why these were formulated;

• To describe why redevelopment in particular has proven historically contentious in diverse racial contexts, and how this situation has evolved in recent years;

• To present a few maps and graphs that show continuing patterns of racial segregration in metropolitan areas and to discuss how and why these vary by city and region, as well as their implications; and

• To note why equal-access provision of housing continues to be an important area of concern related to race and social justice, with brief mention of the efforts of fair housing initiatives.

A reception will follow the presentation. CM Credit for the event is pending approval. If you have any questions about the event, contact Kevin Keenan at keenank@cofc.edu.
