A majestic one-hundred-year study of segregation in Los Angeles.

City of Segregation traces one hundred years of the struggle against segregation in Los Angeles: from the struggles that ended de jure segregation in 1948; to the campaign that resulted in the 1964 prohibition on de facto discrimination; and the 2006 fight to implement strict controls over private security forces and to preserve over 10,000 residential hotel units in the heart of gentrifying downtown. In tracing these fights, Gibbons illustrates the ways in which racism has been central to the way that the city of Los Angeles—like all US cities—has formed and grown.
