At the height of the “urban crisis” of the 1970s and 1980s, a considerable amount of research was generated that focused on the racialized roots of urban economic inequality and residential segregation, and the policy options that could mitigate both. In the years since, cities have physically and economically rebounded while the circumstances of the populations at the heart of the urban crisis remaining the same or worsened. This panel is organized around the provocative indictment lodged by Chester Hartman in his classic 1994 essay, “On Poverty and Race We Have Had Little to Say” and the perspective that research on that focuses on the resulting manifestations of racial inequality in urban areas has eclipsed research on the causes of race inequality in them. This panel seeks to contribute to the reinvigoration of a clear focus on racial inequalities and injustices by the fields of urban studies generally and planning specifically by interrogating how and why urban studies and planning scholarship moved race to the periphery.
