UPDATE: Check out the webinar recording, available here! We’re grateful to Edward and Rashad for taking the time to talk with us, and to the many attendees for their thoughtful questions. We hope you’ll take a moment to watch the discussion, which touched on everything from concentrations of white wealth to equitable community participation in planning. Don’t forget: Carolina Planning Journal’s 2021 Call for Papers is focused on issues of white supremacy and urban planning; consider submitting a proposal, or reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss an idea.
See the original event description below:
Join the Carolina Planning Journal (CPJ) and UNC’s Department of City and Regional Planning for a discussion on white supremacy in urban planning.
Building on their recent article, Whiteness and Urban Planning, authors Edward Goetz and Rashad Williams will discuss how white supremacist institutions have been created and perpetuated through urban planning, and will elaborate on how a more explicit analysis of whiteness and white affluence can inform and improve planning practice and outcomes for Black, Indigenous, and other communities of color.
