In today’s LIVE episode at our first Dinner and a Podcast at Poplar Tapas, we meet Tom Hanchett, author of “Sorting Out the New South City: Race, Class, and Urban Development in Charlotte, 1875 to 1975 (2nd Edition).

The New York Times says that “Tom Hanchett’s Sorting Out the New South City [discovers] surprising things about the development of Southern cities.” And Southern Cultures says of the book: “This is a southern story of the emergence of mercantile, industrial, banking, and real estate entrepreneurs and how they shaped a city in an era of black disenfranchisement, Jim Crow, and the waning political power of white workers. . . . [Hanchett] provides a broad context for understanding that the shape of our cities is far from happenstance.”

The re-release of the book serves as a call for cities not to forget their past as they chart their future. Tom starts the show with a reading from the Preface to the Second Edition.
