Download The Most Segregated City in America": City Planning and by Charles E. Connerly PDF

By Charles E. Connerly

2006

"But for Birmingham," Fred Shuttleworth recalled President John
F. Kennedy asserting in June 1963 while he invited black leaders to fulfill with him, "we would
now not be the following today." Birmingham is widely known for its civil rights historical past, quite for
the violent white-on-black bombings that happened there within the Nineteen Sixties, leading to the
city’s nickname "Bombingham." what's much less popular approximately Birmingham’s
racial historical past, even if, is the level to which early urban making plans judgements prompted and
brought on the city’s civil rights protests. the 1st book-length paintings to research this
connection, "The such a lot Segregated urban in America": urban making plans and Civil Rights in
Birmingham, 1920–1980
uncovers the impression of Birmingham’s city planning
judgements on its black groups and divulges how those judgements led on to the civil
rights movement.

Spanning over sixty years, Charles E. Connerly’s study
starts within the Nineteen Twenties, whilst Birmingham used city making plans as an excuse to enforce racial zoning
legislation, pointedly sidestepping the 1917 U.S. splendid court docket Buchanan v. Warley determination that had
struck down racial zoning. the results of this obstruction was once the South’s longest-standing
racial zoning legislations, which lasted from 1926 to 1951, whilst it used to be redeclared unconstitutional by
the U.S. superb courtroom. although African americans constituted not less than 38 percent
of Birmingham’s citizens, they confronted drastic obstacles to their freedom to decide on where
to reside. while in the1940s they rebelled through trying to buy houses in off-limit areas,
their efforts have been classified as a problem to urban making plans, leading to govt and court
interventions that grew to become violent. greater than fifty bombings ensued among 1947 and 1966,
changing into nationally publicized in basic terms in 1963, whilst 4 black women have been killed within the bombing of
the 16th road Baptist Church.

Connerly successfully uses
Birmingham’s historical past as an instance to argue the significance of spotting the hyperlink that
exists among urban making plans and civil rights. His demonstration of the way Birmingham’s
race-based making plans legacy ended in the confrontations that culminated within the city’s
fight for civil rights offers a clean lens at the heritage and way forward for city making plans, and
its relation to race.
