Welcome to the Dallas Group of the Sierra Club
Dallas Sierra Club General Meeting via Zoom - Tuesday, November 9
Paved A Way
Please join us as our Dallas Sierra Club colleague, Collin Yarborough, discusses his new book, Paved Away: Infrastructure, Policy and Racism in an American City. For over a year, Collin Yarborough explored Dallas' history with the help of some of Dallas' greatest residents and advocates, in order to understand the intersection of infrastructure, policy and racism in this city. This book is the first step in learning, unlearning, and relearning that history...an attempt at narrative change in a city so determined to pave away the past.
This book tells the stories of five neighborhoods in Dallas and how they were shaped by racism and economic oppression. The communities look nothing like what they did during their prime. Their declines were intentional; their foundations were chipped away over time. The book is an eye-opening look at the various factors that led, and continue to lead, to dissolution of neighborhoods. And it offers solutions to reverse these age-old practices.
From 6:45 to 7:00 p.m. you can log in to the meeting, chat, and ask questions. The meeting will begin at 7:00 with announcements, followed by our speaker's presentation.
