Dr. Perry will examine
the impact of racial bias on homeownership opportunities
Dr. Andre Perry, a native of Pittsburgh, PA, is a Senior Fellow at the Metropolitan Policy Program at Brookings, a Scholar in Residence at American University and a Columnist for the Hechinger Report. His research focuses on race and structural inequity, education and economic inclusion.
In his latest book “Know Your Price: Valuing Black Lives and Property in America’s Black Cities.” Dr. Perry gives an overview of five Black Majority cities and provides detailed analysis of how the assets and strengths of these places have been devalued. The book is both research and memoir.
Our discussion will examine the impact of racial bias on homeownership opportunities. Dr. Perry’s research has identified Rochester, as one of the most devalued cities for Black homeownership with an average loss of 65%, over
$53,000 in absolute price difference.
