During the 20th century, local and federal officials reinforced racial segregation through a number of policies and practices in Richmond. Though these are no longer legal, the implications of these actions were profound: Neighborhoods once deemed hazardous because of their racial makeup are still predominantly black and brown and are areas of higher poverty. They are also the neighborhoods most vulnerable to climate change, affected by higher temperatures and flooding more acutely than wealthier, whiter parts of the city. Panelists in this webinar will examine the relationships between 20th century urban policy, racial inequality, and climate change in Richmond, and what we can do about it now.|
