See Hayward, How Americans Make Race, chap. 2, “Black Places,” and Harris, “Whiteness as Property,” 1716: “The origins of property rights in the United States are rooted in racial domination. Even in the early years of the country, it was not the concept of race alone that operated to oppress Blacks and Indians; rather, it was the interaction between conceptions of race and property that played a critical role in establishing and maintaining racial and economic subordination.” 26.

Studies coming from multiple disciplinary perspectives discuss various aspects of the HUD Act and its impact. This book builds substantially on this existing scholarship.
