Undesign the Redline: The Bronx
Thursday, June 18 2015 - Sunday, July 19 2015
"Redlining is the practice of, in the United States, denying, or charging more for, services such as banking, insurance, access to health care, or even supermarkets, or denying jobs to residents in particular, often racially determined, areas." (Wikipedia)
By cutting off the flow of investment to communities of color, Redlining was how structural racism was designed into our cities. It shifted segregation from superstructure to infrastructure. Redlining has never truly been undone.
Undesign the Redline exposes the history of Redlining, its lingering effect, and collective actions communities can take to build a new social and economic ecosystem that breaks its destructive bounds.
