ATX Together: Roots of Racism in Austin

02/04/2021 | 28m 56s | Video has closed captioning.

Austin’s 1928 Master Plan is the heart of institutionalized racism that forced all Black people to move east of East Avenue, where I-35 stands today. Judy Maggio talks with UT’s Dr. Kevin Foster, former Austin City Council Member Ora Houston, and community mobility advocate and attorney Yasmine Smith about how the plan continues to shape our city’s racial divide almost 100 years later.
