Once commonly thought to be the sole province of the white middle class and elites, by 2010, American suburbs were home to the majority of all racial and ethnic minorities, immigrants, and the poor. In a profound departure from central city white flight that shaped the late-twentieth century metropolis, young white professionals and aging baby boomers are now moving into urban neighborhoods at unprecedented rates, while diverse, non-white, and poor suburbs are experiencing greater population gains than either central cities or predominantly white suburbs. This breakfast roundtable seeks to engage scholars in a discussion about important questions that these demographic shifts raise for future of scholarship on the American suburbs, particularly for scholars interested in issues of metropolitan equality.
