Join us to discuss books and long-form articles about current social issues and how they relate to Pittsburgh. Policy Pages will meet the first Tuesday of the month from March – June at various Library locations.
Discussions are free and open to the public. While no registration is necessary, we are able to offer a free copy of the book to the first ten registered participants for each discussion. Books are also available for you to check out.
April’s selection is Family Properties: Race, Real Estate, and the Exploitation of Black America by Beryl Satter. Beryl Satter’s father, Mark Satter, was a Chicago civil-rights attorney who represented many black families against exploitative real-estate contracts in the 1950s and ’60s. In Family Properties, Satter draws on her father’s records to piece together a thoughtful and very personal account of the exploitation that kept blacks segregated and impoverished.
