"In the nation's capital of homelessness, housing has always been at the center of the fight for social justice. In this landmark study, Gibbons arms today's activists with a rich understanding of past movements for fair and affordable housing."
--Mike Davis, author of City of Quartz

"A much-needed corrective to dominant narratives of segregation and an alternative geography of Los Angeles racism."
--Laura Pulido, coauthor of Black, Brown, Yellow, and Left
