Zoning and Race In Chicago

A couple quotes by Amanda Williams are important for starting to understand race and zoning in Chicago:

“Chicago is one of the most segregated cities in the United States. When you grow up in a place like this, where there are invisible lines that you should not cross, places that don’t belong to you, then your whole perception of the way the world operates is the grid.”

Amanda Williams

“It’s a metastasis baked into every kernel, from planning and zoning, to multi- and single-family housing, and conversations about public and private space.”
