Race and Real Estate brings together new work by architects, sociologists, legal scholars, and literary critics that qualifies and complicates traditional narratives of race, property, and citizenship in the United States. Rather than simply rehearsing the standard account of how blacks were historically excluded from homeownership, the authors of these essays explore how the raced history of property affects understandings of home and citizenship. While the narrative of race and real estate in America has usually been relayed in terms of institutional subjugation, dispossession, and forced segregation, the essays collected in this volume acknowledge the validity of these histories while presenting new perspectives on this story.

"I strongly recommend Race and Real Estate to everyone interested in the topic, particularly those who feel they already know a lot about these topics. This is a difficult book to summarize because it is so rich. For me, each chapter offered new insights and new information on familiar topics and generally challenged some of my long-held understandings related to issues of race and real estate. It is a must read."
--Nancy Denton, Contemporary Sociology
