Racism in Real Estate (Duluth) - 2 CE Credits
Time & Location
Mar 10, 2021, 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM CST
About the Event
Racism in Real Estate explores structural racism and the racial wealth gap as it applies to housing. We'll consider the role of the real estate industry in the history of racial housing discrimination. How did redlining and racial covenants affect our neighborhoods? How do these policies still shape our community today?
This class was created with materials from the Mapping Prejudice project and other research by instructor Denise Pike. Additional information from Duluth's history has been researched and examined to offer a regionally specific session of this course. Real estate agents and community members from Duluth, Superior, and surrounding areas are particularly encouraged to attend. Anyone is welcome.
This session is sponsored by Lake Superior Area Realtors. Their generous sponsorship has made this course available at no cost to all participants.
Mapping Prejudice is a team of geographers, historians, digital humanists, and activists working to illustrate the history of racial discrimination in Hennepin County. They are mapping racially restrictive covenants to show that large swaths of our residential communities were protected for white households, contributing to our current racial wealth gap.
