The conventional story of suburbs as bastions of white, middle-class homeowners no longer describes the suburbs of America’s cities. Today they house a more typical cross-section of the nation – rich, poor, Black American, Latino, Asian, immigrant, the unhoused, the lavishly housed, and everyone in between. Nowhere, writes historian Becky Nicolaides, are these changes more vivid than in Los Angeles, where stories of everyday suburban life have taken on new inflections. Join us for a webinar on February 20 at 6pm ET as Nicolaides discusses her new book, The New Suburbia: How Diversity Remade Suburban Life in Los Angeles after 1945. Based on a half-century of quantitative data and unpublished oral histories and interviews, The New Suburbia explores this vital transformation.
