Housing Segregation in U.S. Cities with Professor Paige Glotzer
In this episode of 1050 Bascom, we speak with Paige Glotzer, Professor of History, about housing segregation in U.S. cities. Prof. Glotzer offered her insights into how suburban developers, including Baltimore’s Roland Park Company, ushered in modern housing segregation with the help of transnational financiers, real estate institutions, and public policymakers. She shared with us how the effects of these efforts continue to be felt today here in Madison and across the country. We learned so much from our conversation with Prof. Glotzer, and hope you will too.

In this episode of 1050 Bascom we talk to Joaquin Altoro, the executive director of the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Association (WHEDA) to discuss the intersection of politics, racial equity and affordable housing.
