How Racism Takes Place
- By: George Lipsitz
- Narrated by: Pete Ferrand
- Length: 13 hrs and 6 mins
Revealing how seemingly race-neutral urban sites contain hidden racial assumptions and imperatives, Lipsitz examines the ways in which urban space and social experience are racialized and emphasizes that aggrieved communities do not passively acquiesce to racism. He recognizes the people and communities that have re-imagined segregated spaces in expressive culture as places for congregation.
