Gene Slater and Mitchell Schwarzer on Systemic Racism in Housing

Presented by the Mechanics Institute and sponsored by the American Institute of Architects, San Francisco, this conversation features a deep dive into the research of Heyday author and longtime fair housing advocate Gene Slater in his recent book, Freedom to Discriminate, which explores the definitive role realtors' played in segregating US housing and shaping conservative rhetoric up to current day.

Joining him for the conversation is Professor of Architectural and Urban History Mitchell Schwarzer, of California Colleges of the Arts, author of Hella Town (UC Press).
