March 9th, 2013 Symposium

Equitable and Sustainable Development: a Path Forward

9:00 am – 4:00 pm at Soujourner-Douglass College.




As the book Race, Class, Power, and Organizing in East Baltimore: Rebuilding Abandoned Communities in America boldly documents: “We rarely  acknowledge the history of racism and classism as reasons for urban poverty and decay in U.S. cities. Usually we blame the current residents for deterioration. Seldom do we consider the role of developers in contributing to future urban decay, benefiting from it through public:private development projects. Usually we see them as “saving” a neighborhood’s residents from themselves. And seldom do we include the residents of the area in the process of rebuilding their community. Usually we remove the people, rebuild the place, and invite people with power—from a different race and class—to live, work, and play in the renewed community. And we do all this without ever addressing the root causes of poverty in the process of rebuilding a healthy community.”

Using this compelling history and current story of rebuilding an abandoned community in Baltimore -through displacement of more than 1000 low-income and poor African American families through eminent domain- as a departure point, this one day symposium envisioned a path forward to more equitable and sustainable redevelopment practices.
