Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor
 Dale Lehman/WZRD  Contact Contributor
Blacks in Chicago have been exploited and cheated by real estate developers, insurance companies, and bankers pretty much nonstop following their migration to this city to escape the repression of Jim Crow in southern states and the allure of employment opportunity. The Federal government and local politicians added to their impoverishment through 'Urban Renewal' and Interstate Highway projects that destroyed community and which consciously sought to push them into the suburbs as documented by Hirsch in "Making the Second Ghetto: Race and Housing in Chicago 1940-1960" .
Dr. Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor's Phd thesis into the continued racist exploitation of African-Americans became the basis for her book "Race for Profit: The Political Economy of Black Urban Housing in the 1970's ". NEIU President Gloria Gibson makes the introduction of the speaker.
