Some recent scholarship argues that racial segregation is no longer a concern in the 21st century, noting the decline in residential segregation between blacks and whites over the past several decades. But while segregation levels between blacks and whites have certainly declined, they remain quite high, and Hispanic and Asian segregation have meanwhile remained unchanged. Further, in segregated cities, the lecture will show that the neighborhood environments of minorities continue to be highly unequal to those enjoyed by whites. Blacks and Hispanics continue to live among more disadvantaged neighbors, to have access to lower performing schools, and to be exposed to more violent crime. As a result, segregation continues to undermine the social and economic prospects of young black and Hispanic adults.
