Why are so many neighborhoods and workplaces still segregated forty-eight years after passage of the civil rights act? This course provides a critical examination of the role that race and racial politics play in housing market and labor market outcomes. Through analysis of the evidence, class discussion, conducting an empirical study, and written assignments, we will increase our understanding of what causes racial inequality, how it is maintained, and the consequences of racial isolation.
