Racial and Socio-Economic Equity Issues in Jefferson County Public Schools”

 

Next Third Thursday: February 15, 2018
Jeana Dunlap & Cathy Hinko,
“Redlining Louisville: The History of Race, Class, and Real Estate”
Developed by local urban planner Joshua Poe from documents he uncovered in the National Archives, “Redlining Louisville” is an “interactive story map,” layering data past and present, that illustrates how real estate redlining has impacted housing development, disinvestment and lending patterns in Louisville since the 1930s. Jeana Dunlap, Director of Louisville’s Office of Redevelopment Strategies, will demonstrate features from this nationally recognized online, interactive website. Cathy Hinko, Director of the Metropolitan Housing Coalition, will talk about the steps we as a community must take to finally dismantle the systems that have made Louisville, by one measure, the fourth-most segregated city in the United States.
