People United - June 15, 2018

Race, Floodplains, & Austin's Waller Creek (Expanded)


People United features environmental historian and educator Katie Pace on the historical role of floodplains in racial division and displacement in Austin, particularly Waller Creek's underacknowledged yet foundational status as a racial boundary.  (This episode, originally broadcast in truncated form the previous September, now has been expanded to address current events.)

She spoke at MonkeyWrench Books here in Austin on May 23, 2017.
