About the Event

Beryl Satter’s 2009 book Family Properties uncovered the ways that predatory real estate practices impoverished urban black communities in the mid-twentieth century. Her new work on ShoreBank (1973-2010), a Chicago-based community development bank that provided African Americans with fair access to credit, carries her analysis of structural racism through the post-1973 transformations in banking and finance.

Beryl Satter is Faculty in the Dept. of History and the Graduate Program in American Studies at Rutgers University—Newark.
