Michigan Radio Interviews Dr. Lynn Todman
On Bridging Social & Economic Gaps
11.17.11

As part of its special Web video series on socioeconomic class, Michigan (Public) Radio interviewed Dr. Lynn Todman, Ph.D., Executive Director of the Adler School’s Institute on Social Exclusion, for insights on “Bridging the Gap Between Benton Harbor and St. Joseph.”

The two strikingly different Michigan communities, separated by a river, illustrate how urban planning and environment can affect social, racial and class gaps, as Dr. Todman explains. "A very obvious way to bridge the gap...would be to put some kind of transportation in that would allow people to go back and forth. That has not happened. I can add that it’s probably not cost effective to have two fire departments, three school districts, two city halls.... It would make economic sense for them to work more closely together, and certainly social sense as well."
