Race, Residential Patterns, and Inequality in Metro Atlanta rescheduled to June 10

Please join us on June 10 (7pm for food, 7:30 for presentation) Manuel’s Tavern in Atlanta for Dr. Regine Jackson’s discussion of the ways in which race shapes the residential patterns in Atlanta.

In this presentation, Dr. Regine Jackson (Associate Professor of Sociology and Africana Studies, Agnes Scott College) explains some of the demographic changes that the Atlanta metropolitan area has undergone in the last 40 years. She challenges the idea that the incorporation of immigrants and new ethnic groups has dismantled the black-white dichotomy that once characterized the “old South.” Using data from the U.S. Census and field research with Caribbean and African immigrants, Dr. Jackson argues that while many new immigrants have diversified predominantly white suburbs, for blacks – regardless of ancestry – residential settlement and business location continue to be structured by race. The presentation hopes to raise questions about enduring patterns of segregation, spatial inequality and the meaning of diversity in the “post-racial” South.
