In this all-new Zoom PowerPoint, Linda brings to life the history of her family’s investment and work in West Garfield Park for most of the 20th century—before, during, and after the neighborhood’s racial change, interwoven with the history of redlining. With special poignancy and relevance in this era of Black Lives Matter, Linda connects the dots between today’s racial profiling and inequities to the government policy of redlining that segregated America. Digitized maps of original 1940s redlining maps are displayed and discussed. Q&A afterward.
