Challenging Racism is collaborating with the Neighborhood Conservation Advisory Commission for a program on redlining. Part of Virginia Humanities’ and the Kellogg Foundation’s Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation Project, this interactive program focuses on the Federal Housing Administration’s mid-20th century use of redlining to prevent loans to Black people in selected areas. Using local maps and stories, Challenging Racism will show how these practices affected Arlington by rules and laws supporting in segregated housing and influencing housing patterns today. Attendees will have opportunities for questions, discussion and reflection. Resources for follow-up reading and discussion will be provided.
This event is free and open to the public.
