Reviews

"While extensively documented and amply footnoted, Cashin's survey remains compelling and accessible to a general readership. A resonant, important argument that White supremacy and racial division poison life in our cities."
-Kirkus Reviews

"Cashin's study of the racial foundations of residential castes is an accessible and compelling read that balances historical documents with personal narratives."
-Library Journal

"This well-researched and accessibly written volume examines the government-created system of residential caste in the US. Cashin also provides ideas for the abolition of these practices to create a more equitable future for all."
-Ms. Magazine, "September 2021 Reads for the Rest of Us, 9/1"

"In White Space, Black Hood: Opportunity Hoarding and Segregation in the Age of Inequality, Sheryll Cashin demonstrates how durable and pervasive anti-Black rhetoric has been in American thought from the days of Thomas Jefferson to the era of Donald Trump . . . . Cashin explains how racial presumptions once used to justify enslavement eventually led to mandatory segregation in housing."
-Washington Post

"Sheryll Cashin is one of the most important civil rights scholars of our time, and White Space, Black Hood is her magnum opus, the searing culmination of decades of research about the devastating consequences of segregation. Cashin builds on Michelle Alexander's The New Jim Crow and Isabel Wilkerson's Caste to take down liberal and conservative orthodoxies on race. (White) America is not ready for this book."
-Paul Butler, author of Chokehold: Policing Black Men

"In this brilliant and nuanced new volume, Sheryll Cashin exposes the ways in which American policy decisions, from the early twentieth century to the present, have constructed a 'residential caste system' resulting in the entrapment of Black people in high-poverty neighborhoods while 'overinvesting in affluent white space.' Riveting and beautifully written, White Space, Black Hood convinces the reader of the centrality of geography in economic and social inequality."
-Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

"We need Sheryll Cashin's scholarship to make sense of the racial inequalities that mar every urban community, and we need her vision to guide us to a more equal society. Illuminating, compassionate, and engrossing . . . an instant classic."
-Heather McGhee, author of The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together

"With analytical precision, Sheryll Cashin masterfully tells the story of how Black neighborhoods have been gutted by the system of housing anti-Blackness. . . . White Space, Black Hood is clear, compelling, and demands our attention."
-Bettina L. Love, author of We Want to Do More Than Survive

"In pulling back the curtain on how residential segregation creates caste for some and economic profit for others, Cashin offers a clear-eyed view of the precarity of our present and provides a path toward a more equitable future."
-Noliwe Rooks, author of Cutting School: The Segrenomics of American Education
