A World More Concrete: Real Estate & The Remaking Of Jim Crow South Florida

Oct 28, 2014

10/28/14 - Today’s Topical Currents looks at the history of real estate and land usage in South Florida, since the inception of the City of Miami to today’s three-county urban mass. Not unlike other American communities, Miami’s black population was exploited by white entrepreneurs and politicians . . . but historian Nathan Connolly also uncovers key black figures engaged in the same practices as well, changing forever how we think about segregation . He’s written, A WORLD MORE CONCRETE:  Real Estate and the Remaking of Jim Crow South Florida. That’s Topical Currents with Joseph Cooper & Bonnie Berman Tuesday at 1pm on 91.3 WLRN.
