Ep.59 | Transportation, Civil Rights and Opportunity with Henry L. Greenidge

Decades-old housing policies, which included redlining, have had a detrimental and lasting effect on American society.  

As with housing, did you know that all communities do not receive the same benefits from transportation advancements and investments in the USA? 

On today’s The Adverse Effects, Henry L Greenidge talks to us about the often-forgotten role that transportation plays in regard to mobility and opportunities. 

Henry covers the historical link in the design of the transportation and housing systems that promoted racial segregation and keeps black Americans away from opportunities. 

Discover how transportation has played a pivotal role in the context of civil rights. Also, learn about the actions that can be taken to initiate change for the better. 

Henry L. Greenidge is a dynamic attorney and government affairs professional with over ten years of experience in policy advising and legal advocacy. His areas of expertise span infrastructure issues such as broadband, energy, sustainability, and mobility—including autonomous transportation. Greenidge is currently the Director of Partnerships & Head of Public Affairs at REEF Technology and a Fellow-in-Residence at the NYU McSilver Institute. 


Transportation can be used to keep us down or give us opportunities.” — Henry L Greenidge 

“When you pivot be ready to feel like you don’t belong, but it doesn’t mean those feelings are true.” — Henry L Greenidge 

“...there’s a point in time you need to recognize that in order to get to the next level you need to leave some things behind and unfortunately sometimes that means people...” — Henry L Greenidge
