The Black Buffalo Tour

Ticket Required

Ticket Required Buffalo has faced the challenge of racial and social injustice – historically and today. The metropolitan region epitomizes how development has been shaped by patterns of discrimination and segregation in housing. Local grassroots organizations are a source of sustained advocacy for change. This tour will weave together the stories of fair and affordable housing organizations, community-based service organizations, and grassroots advocates. We will visit projects, agencies, and people that illustrate Black Buffalo’s continuing fight for racial and social justice.

Travel Mode: Bus, Walking
University at Buffalo Tour Leader: Robert Silverman, Professor
