Episode 51: Stacey Sutton

Fight/Build! Maroon Spaces and Real Black Utopias

Stacey Sutton, Associate Professor of Urban Planning and Policy and
Director of Applied Research and Strategic Partnerships, Social Justice Initiative – University of Illinois at Chicago

We take a turn toward worker cooperatives in this episode, and what is variously called the  solidarity economy, community wealth-building, or economic democracy. We explore the power of learning participatory democracy through struggle and collective action with a brilliant scholar/activist/teacher and guide, Stacey Sutton, an Associate Professor in the Department of Urban Planning and Policy, and Director of Applied Research and Strategic Partnerships at UIC’s Social Justice Initiative.
