From Redlining to Predatory Lending: The Racial Wealth Gap

October

16

5:30p.m. - 8:00p.m.

Join us for a panel discussion and community conversation about the lifecycle of redlining, disinvestment, predatory lending, and gentrification and displacement — a damaging cycle that runs on racial prejudice and the unregulated flow of extractive capital out of and into communities — and the set of critical interventions from government, communities and businesses that are necessary at each stage of this destructive cycle. This event will lift up the need for community-owned, deeply rooted financial institutions, businesses and housing; for government protections and incentives to make sure that productive, non-extractive services, goods and housing are available to low and moderate income residents during times of disinvestment, and protections for those residents so they are able to remain, thrive and reap the benefits of the influx of capital; and the need for community based advocacy and organizing to hold businesses and investors accountable to make investments that benefit the existing community, rather than profiting from their anticipated and engineered displacement.

West of Central: Post-Show Discussion with Mapping Prejudice

October

11

7:30p.m. - 9:30p.m.

West of Central is set in the Watts neighborhood of Low Angeles, in the aftermath of the urban unrest that roiled more than 150 American cities. The plot turns on the racist housing practices that created the highly segregated--and ultimately explosive--landscape of American cities in the 1960s. After the performance, Mapping Prejudice co-founder, Kirsten Delegard. will be on hand to talk about covenants, redlining and white violence created the racial disparities that we have today in Minneapolis. We look forward to talking with the audience about the connections between the past and the present. In dialogue, we are looking to explore how an awareness of history can help us build a more equitable future.

Reframing Fair Housing, Reclaiming Neighborhood History

June

21

6:00p.m. - 8:00p.m.

The way our neighborhoods look and feel today are a product of our shared history; one shaped by racist policies that barred households of color from homeownership and wealth accumulation for many years. In spite of these intentional barriers, like redlining and racial covenants, communities of color created and continue to build vibrant neighborhoods, rich with gathering places and family legacies that are often lost to the general public — and policy makers who make decisions that impact our lives everyday. Join us for the first gathering of the “Racism, Rent and Real Estate: Fair Housing Reframed” event series to learn more about the history and impetus of fair housing laws and share your knowledge about the history of your family and neighborhood.
