THE HARDER WE RUN

The State of Black Buffalo in 1990 and the Present

By Henry-Louis Taylor, Jr., Jin-Kyu Jung, and Evan Dash

The U.B. Center for Urban Studies is releasing its study, The Harder We Run: The State of Black Buffalo in 1990 and the Present, by Henry-Louis Taylor, Jr., Jin-Kyu Jung, and Evan Dash. Thirty-one years ago, in 1990, the U.B. Center released its study, African Americans and the Rise of Buffalo’s Post-Industrial City, 1940 to Present. This investigation was the most comprehensive study ever conducted on Black Buffalo. This past summer, the Buffalo Health Equity Center asked the U.B. Center to use the 1990 Black Buffalo Study and answer the question, “Has Black Buffalo progressed since 1990?” The U.B. Center took on the project but did not request any funding. The report, The Harder We Run, answers the question, “Has Black Buffalo progressed since 1990?” The report tells us what happened to Black Buffalo over the past thirty-one years, why it happened, and what we can do about it.
