Respect and the City: Race, Class, and Development in Detroit... and NYC 

Presented by the Center for New York City Affairs

Detroit and New York are both iconic American cities with long histories of tension at the intersections of race and class, labor and capital. In tough economic times, competition for resources and power can be fierce. How do groups demand respect and gain economic influence? How have these tensions shaped urban America in recent decades - - and why have these two cities followed such different paths out of the era of industrial decline and the rise of globalization?

Remarks by:

George Galster, author, Driving Detroit, and professor of urban affairs, Wayne State University

Followed by a discussion with:

Ademola Oyefeso, political and legislative director, The Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, UFCW, CLC
