Your Call's One Planet Series: Carl Anthony on race, urban inequality and environmental justice

Carl Anthony

On the next Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with renowned architect Carl Anthony about the racial history of architecture and urban design.

In his new book, The Earth, the City, and the Hidden Narrative of Race, Anthony argues that contemporary forms of urban inequality in the United States can be traced to unresolved issues and injustices lingering from the slave trade era.
