What were the ramifications/consequences of “white flight” (white families moving to the suburbs)?

I love hearing about the historical Jewish-Black connections in Chicago. Thank you for sharing your and your father’s personal stories. What organizations and institutions (and people n addition to Johanna Thompson) are currently doing important work connecting Black and Jewish communities in Chicago?

Today people can apply for a mortgage online without ever meeting the mortgage officer. Does that have any affect on black people to buy in the suburbs or in white neighborhoods?

This is a problem with our government both locally and nationally. How do you recommend that we fight these predatory practices that are still in existence (ie unfair taxing of poor neighborhoods where housing is overvalued and therefore they are paying higher than fair taxes)?
Evan Lufrano
01:42:02
This is kind of a dumb question; So if banks had lended black people mortgages, would any of this have happened with them buying contract deals?

What an amazing experience for you personally to research and write this book and get to know your father and the work he devoted his life to. Thank you for sharing what you learned on this journey with the rest of us. I wonder, what role do you think our government leaders locally and nationally, should be playing in putting a stop to these practices? What specifically should our leaders be doing that they are not doing?

In what ways did changing views of Jewish identity play into this situation?

JCUA has a terrific program for high school students in the summer called Or Tzedek. The program has Jewish youth volunteer in neighborhoods with children, at community gardens and even in helping strikers.
