She highlights the influence of American anti-urbanism upon visions of the city during the Great Migration Using an analysis of the history of Los Angeles's streetcar and highway systems, Sikivu Hutchinson argues that the cultural geography of transportation has had a compelling influence upon the construction of race, gender, and urban subjectivity in the postmodern city. She highlights the influence of American anti-urbanism upon visions of the city during the Great Migration and World War II eras. Proceeding from the premise that the creation of city spaces are informed by collective cultural memory, Hutchinson explores how the decline of public transportation and the rise of the automobile have shaped African American communities and cultures in Los Angeles.

    Sikivu Hutchinson is Amazing i took all of her class's at CalArts... if you can get your hands on this book you should read it. I also recommend reading her articles “Billions for War, Cuts for Schools” “Black on Black Crime”.
