Several Penn faculty members recently published a book on the history and current existence of housing discrimination, despite the passage of the Fair Housing Act more than 50 years ago.
The book, titled “Perspectives on Fair Housing,” was published as part of the Penn Press series, “The City in the Twenty-First Century.” Co-edited by Provost Wendell Pritchett and professors Vincent Reina and Susan Wachter, the volume features chapters written by Penn professors Francesca Ammon, Akira Rodríguez, Rand Quinn, Camille Charles, and Amy Hillier. The Penn Institute for Urban Research presented a six-part livestream series in conjunction with the book’s release in October.
