LA County Bike Coalition’s Tamika Butler on Planning While Black

Too often, says Tamika Butler, the people responsible for planning cities don't look like the people who live in cities. In her keynote address from this week's NACTO Designing Cities conference, she considers some of the ramifications.

Butler is executive director of the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition and a national leader in the field of active transportation and racial justice. Her talk begins about five minutes into this audio file.

Jeff Wood of the Overhead Wire recorded Butler's presentation and several other NACTO sessions. You can tune in and listen to them all at his SoundCloud site.
