Redlining and its Repercussions
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Redlining—the systematically racist banking practice of denying loans to people of color in post-WWII urban neighborhoods—is often portrayed as a closed chapter in the nation’s history of structural inequality. Yet intense discrimination persists as non-white communities face continuous exclusion from the “American Dream” of homeownership, or are targeted by predatory lending practices, further widening the racial wealth gap. Join UC Berkeley’s Richard Rothstein, as he reveals the findings of his recent book, The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How our Government Segregated America, April de Simone, co-creator of the Undesign the Redline project, Sarita Daftary-Steel, founder of the East New York Oral History Project, and Catherine Green, Founder and Executive Director of ARTs East NY and Founding Steering Committee Member of the Coalition for Community Advancement, in a conversation moderated by Kai Wright, host of WNYC podcasts There Goes the Neighborhood, Indivisible, and The Stakes.
Venue: Brooklyn Historical Society
