S10 E2: Segregated Sacramento

Cosmo Garvin explores Sacramento’s history of housing policies and how they have created racial and economic divisions across the region. This is the second episode of the The View From Here, Place and Privilege podcast.


Sacramento has a long history of housing policies that favor some groups while excluding others. With the help of some local historians and professors, reporter Cosmo Garvin gives us a sense of the patterns of racial and economic segregation created by these housing laws, including redlining. He takes us to communities that were shaped by this history and remain divided to this day.
