Join author, educator, and archivist Linda Gartz for a discussion of her award-winning book Redlined: A Memoir of Race, Change, and Fractured Community in 1960s Chicago. Inspired by a trove of long-hidden family letters, diaries, photos, spanning the 20th century, Redlined interweaves a riveting family story with the history of redlining. In this live Zoom talk and discussion, Linda will read short excerpts from Redlined, and connect the dots between today’s racial profiling and inequities to the government policy of redlining that separated America into Black and white. She’ll also share digitized versions of original 1940s redlining maps. There will be plenty of time for Q&A.
