Daniel Dunlap America’s Diverse Cultures 2/15/11 Response on Urban Development and Ghettoization The class readings from Chapter 11 and 12 in, “ Crabgrass Frontier,” contextualizes the development of urban housing from world war I, to the ghettoization of public housing in projects during the nineteen-eighties . The readings explain how until the Great Depression public housing was considered to “socialist,” and that it wasn’t until Franklin D. Roosevelt created policies to end social strife, that society began to support government intervention for urban development. Subsequently, because of cultural and social norms at the time, the quality of development within differing neighborhoods became racialized by color and class, which created distinct, hierarchical, policy in support of urban segregation. Further discussion in our readings showed that recurring policies, claiming good intentions, created segregated housing through public works projects that have resulted in a term used by black youth, the projects.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
