Mapping Inequality

Date and Time: October 26, 2022, 10:00 AM CT

Location: Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum, 204 S Main St, Wichita

Federal and State polities in the early 20th century restricted financial resources to African Americans for housing. Known as redlining, it was followed by another historically discriminatory practice twenty years later—urban renewal. These two programs segregated and changed communities across the nation. This presentation will explore its history and the lingering impact on today's communities. Presented by Donna Rae Pearson.

This presentation is part of "21st Century Civics," a collection of resources that invite Kansans to participate in community discussions and learn more about the history of American democracy and the shared responsibilities of citizenship. "21st Century Civics" is made possible with support from "A More Perfect Union: America at 250," an initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Sponsored by: Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum
