Anthropology 205 "Inequality and Oppression" Name: Eric Russo Date: 1/26/10 Readings: Savage Inequality by Jonathan Kozol, The Origins of the Urban Crisis/Race and Inequality in Postwar Detroit by Thomas J. Sugrue 1. Summary of the Readings - Within Savage Inequalities and The Origins of the Urban Crisis examples were given of the ways blacks were treated in the early to middle 19 th century.

The schools were never updated and these growing children weren’t allowed at other schools
