For our latest podcast, we talked to Megan Asaka, a historian from the University of California-Riverside, about her new book Seattle from the Margins: Exclusion, Erasure, and the Making of a Pacific Coast City. The book focuses on the pre-World War II era and brings in ideas of the built environment as critical to understanding exclusion and racism. Among the interesting insights we talked about here include how housing segregation was central to cities long before anyone invented redlining, the layered nature of oppression in places such as Seattle that included a lot of different ethnic groups, and how these stories are erased from a city in a place that LOVES its white settler celebrations. Seattle loves to think it is an exceptional city that doesn’t have the hate of other places and….yeah, that one doesn’t hold up to the slightest scrutiny.
