Segregated by Design: Housing Inequality in St. Louis
Join us for our May Lunch & Learn as we watch and discuss “Segregated by Design,” a powerful and engaging video that details how our federal, state, and local governments segregated metropolitan areas, including St. Louis, by imposing unconstitutional residential policies.
St. Louis is divided along many lines and race plays a role in every one of those divisions. It determines our future because if you make a transparent map of racial segregation and lay it over other maps – political power, cultural influence, health, wealth, education, and employment – the pattern repeats itself. Why was segregation more dramatic here in St. Louis than it was in other Midwestern cities? Why hasn’t it lifted as quickly?
Judy Gladney, a longtime community activist, will speak about the impact of these policies in St. Louis.
