Race, Politics, and Community Development Funding follows the trail of over $247 million allocated to the city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, from 1975 to 1997. You’ll learn where money designated to address problems of urban blight and poverty really went. Through interviews, participant observation, trace analysis, and a careful review of public records, this illuminating book follows that money and reveals the errors of those who argued that an increase in the number of black elected officials and community activists would result in more resources for low-income areas. Helpful charts, tables, and graphs illustrate the flow of federal dollars.
With Race, Politics, and Community Development Funding you’ll gain a better understanding of:
- how public bureaucracies are an extension of the executive branch, as opposed to being independent public agencies
- how some agencies have used a variety of inaccurate and biased methods and evaluations to fund-or not fund-community based organizations
- the shortcomings of African-American elected officials and biracial coalitions in obtaining resources for minority communities
- how education, job training, and youth/family services are as important as who gets elected to office
- and more!
