Fireside Chat: Mapping Prejudice: Making the Invisible Visible with Kirsten Delegard
Hennepin History Museum
Minneapolis, MN
Share this event:

Our exhibit Owning Up was motivated by the 50th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act, landmark legislation authored by a young Senator Walter Mondale, that sought to remedy housing discrimination by addressing segregation and promoting integration. The Mapping Prejudice project charts the spread of racially-restrictive covenants  property restrictions that prevented non-whites from purchasing or occupying certain parcels of land. The covenants were made illegal by the Fair Housing Act, but the vision remains unrealized 50 years later. Kirsten will talk about the research the team behind Mapping Prejudice is working on and the map designed to help us understand the legacy of historic practice in housing discrimination.  This anniversary presents an opportunity to reflect on the legislation and present-day outcomes.

Mapping Prejudice is based in the Borchert Map Library at the University of Minnesota. Project researchers have analyzed over 1.4 million historic Minneapolis housing deeds and have found racist language in more than 20,000 documents.

This is part of a multi-event series, Racism, Rent, and Real Estate: Fair Housing Reframed. You can find out about other events in that series at http://mhponline.org/communications/racism-rent-and-real-estate-fair-housing-reframed.
