Episode 2: Race & Real Estate: Strategic Segregation

About this Episode:

Where we live is intimately linked to our health — the life expectancy of a child born in a poor neighborhood can be 20 to 30 years shorter than a child born in an upscale neighborhood just a few miles away. For decades, we have used practices and policies in service of “strategic segregation,” concentrating poverty and people of color in the most unhealthy areas of a city. In this episode, we explore this legacy and how we can create better opportunities for housing and health.
