Abstract

This article addresses the spatial distribution of mortgage foreclosure in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, a Southern county that is residentially segregated in terms of race and wealth. It is found that foreclosure activity followed the race–wealth divide by being heavily concentrated in older black neighborhoods, clustered in some white exurban developments, and largely absent from wealthy white areas. The results indicate that blacks and whites experience different patterns of foreclosure and that the housing crisis exacerbates geographical patterns of residential segregation
